The Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education (ACPE) consists of 16 Commissioners, fourteen of whom are Governor appointed, dedicated to expanding access and increasing success in postsecondary education for Arizonans.

These programs are generously funded through grants and sponsorships. Our goal is to provide support from knowledgeable professionals and accurate and timely information to help students and families take the necessary steps to plan, enroll and succeed in a postsecondary institution while continuing to expand the College and Career Goal Arizona programs. Arizona's postsecondary institutions generously provided personnel and resources for the high schools and their students. A single calendar is hosted on this website, where high school events are posted and postsecondary institution personnel can be assigned to each event.
