American Education Week will be celebrated in Grafenwoehr and Vilseck from Nov. 14-18. This year, Army Continuing Education System, or ACES, joins forces with educators nationwide to strengthen their resolve in providing quality education for Soldiers with the Army’s theme “Army Continuing Education- Investing in our Soldiers, Investing in the Future.


ACES offers a variety of programs to assist Soldiers and family members in establishing and reaching educational goals. Once a degree plan and eligibly requirements are established, soldiers can apply for tuition assistance and enroll in classes anywhere in the world, 24/7, via the GoArmyEd portal. Stop by your local Army Education Center for more information on ACES programs and services. While you are there, ask about American Education Week related events.
