Adult Continuing Education classes are the most common classes taken in american prisons and cover a variety of subjects.

The most prevalent advanced education opportunity for federal prisoners are Adult Continuing Education (ACE) classes.

Offered within prisons, these classes are 6-12 weeks long, and are similar to typical adult education course, where a teacher (in this case an educated prisoner), teaches a class about some area of interest.

Business planning, Spanish, writing, legal research and accounting are mainstays of most ACE classes.

Upon completion of ACE courses, the prisoner is awarded a certificate of completion and can then enroll in another ACE class.

As with GED classes, the waiting lists for such classes can be quite lengthy.
