European Student Convention

The European Student Convention (ESC) is an amazing, once-a-year opportunity for students who use the ACE curriculum. 

More than anything, it is a place for ACE students to belong.


This convention is for young people 12 years of age and older, with a junior convention for 10 - 12 year olds. Students compete against each other in a number of events including Art, Photography, Drama, Music, Sport & Athletics, Academics and Bible Memory.


ESC is held at Kingham Hill School in the Cotswolds, a beautiful facility where young people have the opportunity of a lifetime to develop their gifts & talents, all to God’s glory!

Save the date for next year!
