The Comeback Kid [A.C.E. (Accepting the Challenge of Excellence)] Award recognizes high school students who have overcome great physical, emotional, or social obstacles and are now eligible for high school graduation.

This positive program has two key objectives: it helps encourage students to overcome their hardships and get back on track toward a high school diploma. It also recognizes those students who are often overlooked for their accomplishments. This special recognition is a powerful example to all students that hard work and perseverance are rewarded.
