The Academy of Citizenship and Empowerment (ACE) is a public high school in SeaTac, Washington. It is one of three small schools at the Tyee Educational Complex, along with Global Connections High School and Odyssey — The Essential School. It was founded in 2005 when Tyee High School converted into these three schools, and accredited individually in 2006. It is operated by the Highline School District.

The school's enrollment is less than 400, as required by the Coalition of Essential Schools in the conditions for the conversion grant. On the complex, ACE occupies the classroom portions of the 700 building, which excludes the gymnasiums and locker rooms.

ACE combines with the other two Tyee schools to compete in athletics. The Deliberator is the school's monthly newspaper, and some issues can be read online.
