What is the All Course Network?
The All Course Network (ACN) is a statewide course catalog that lets students take free courses at colleges, schools, or online. The ACN helps students access foundational educational opportunities, setting them up for a future without limits.
Who is ACN for?
Students at participating public and charter schools anywhere in Rhode Island.
What is PASA’s role in ACN?
As part of All Course Network, PASA offers a variety of work-based learning courses where high school students explore career paths through hands-on work with experts in their fields. PASA’s ACN courses are offered in partnership with organizations including Providence Public Library, DownCity Design, Young Voices, Roger Williams Park Zoo, and more.
Youth who complete ACN courses offered through PASA receive grades and high school elective credits. Eligible students can earn stipends and priority placement for summer jobs through the City of Providence’s One Providence for Youth Program.
PASA believes that by providing students with pathways of relevant, hands-on learning opportunities in real world settings, ACN courses can excite and engage Rhode Island’s high school students and set them up for success in school, higher education, career, and throughout life.
