Joining ACE and Participating Districts

For Students and Families

  • Are you a student planning on going to college?
  • Are you unsure about college?
  • Do you want to learn more about the college application process?
  • Do you want help setting and reaching goals?
  • Do you want to earn higher grades in high school?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then ACE is the program for you!

ACE is designed to support students who have solid plans to attend college, OR uncertain plans about attending college, or reach their goal of applying and enrolling in college.

Our programs and events are developed to help students gain an understanding of what it means to be a good student, set and reach goals, and attend college after graduation.  All of this takes a steady and constant focus on acquiring skills for success.

How to Join

If you attend a participating school: see your high school liaison or guidance counselor.
If your school does not participate, see your high school principal to ask if the school would like to participate and show them this website.
