ACI Success Story
"...I am so happy that I never gave up and continued my education to get to where I am today. I am also a senior at UNT working on my bachelor's degree with a major in criminal justice and a double minor in sociology and addiction rehabilitation. I hope to go to law school and work in family law as an amicus attorney (an attorney for children). No matter what your situation is or what struggles you have, ACI is a great start to get you on the right path to success!!!
Thank you so much ACI!."
