Dr. Michael Lovecchio, Director

Dr. Michael Lovecchio

Welcome! Thanks for visiting our website. I am thrilled to be the Director at ACE and thank you for entrusting our staff with the education of the students of Beaufort and Jasper Counties. 

I am originally from Massachusetts but have lived in the Lowcountry for the past several years. Before arriving, I served as a history teacher and administrator at the middle and high school levels. I am passionate about career and technical education and the impact it can have on both student lives and in the local community.  CTE has seen its popularity increase in the past few years, and I feel ACE is at the forefront of this movement. We are progressive and student-centered with high expectations for all students and staff.

I am married and a father of two boys.  I am an avid fan of the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, and Arizona State Sun Devils.  I am a graduate of UMass, Arizona State, and Northeastern University.  I also enjoy travel, fishing, cooking, and hanging out with my sons.  I have yet to master southern BBQing and am still getting acclimated to the sand gnats. Please visit us at ACE and see the amazing things our students do every day!
