European Student Convention

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

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.


In 2021, ESC is going to be a virtual event—so it will look a little different. However, the key elements will remain the same, so it's a great opportunity for those who have never attended to get a taste of what ESC is all about. 

And for those who have attended before... start choosing those events!
