Adobe Certified Associate (ACA)

Because creativity can change the world

Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certification is the perfect place to recognize and inspire creativity in your students. It allows students to approach tasks and projects in new ways, working out solutions they couldn't have seen before; and helping you as a teacher become involved with your student's creative process on a new level.

ACA certification offers your students a foundation for success by validating their digital skills, and offering you the ability to assess your student's progress, engagement, and involvement.
