ONLINE CLASSES  

While we are unable to meet in person in our traditional classrooms, we invite you to take advantage of our alternative ONLINE classrooms using Zoom. This way you can stay home and stay safe while still enjoying live ACE classes – but this time in front of your home computer, tablet, or smart phone.

Register as you have always done, and before the class starts, the instructor will email a link to you that will enable you to join the live class.


IMPORTANT: You do NOT need to setup a Zoom account or to provide Zoom with any personal information other than your name. For the best experience, we do recommend you download the Zoom application on your computer, tablet, or smartphone and confirm your device has a camera and microphone.


We invite you to participate in one of the Zoom practice sessions below. We are always here to answer your questions. Contact us at (941) 361-6590 or ace.information@sarasotacountyschools.net.

Registration for these Online classes will end 24 hours before the start of the class so register early!
