A.C.E. Academy is an after school enrichment program dedicated to exposing middle and high school students to college and career choices  as they advance in their academic lives. 

Students get the opportunity to surround themselves with other like-minded students, while being empowered by our team of mentors and volunteers. Girls visit local businesses, talk with professionals, and participate in life and self development exercises .

Middle School Students participate in a number of hands-on, fun activities to help them build self-esteem and peer skills. Local professional and business women come speak to the girls frequently, and we're always sure to visit our local 

High School Students are provided a safe space to transform into the young ladies they are blossoming into. We provide college assistance- such as ACT prep, scholarship resources, and admissions information; in addition to college campus tours, and college readiness exercises.
