A.C.E. Program: Achieving and Creating Excellence
The A.C.E. program allows students in their freshman and sophomore years to gain skills needed for their success in high school and beyond. By partnering with a quality and engaging staff during their transition into High School, ACE students are set up for continued support through critical services such as individual and group counseling. Students have a safe space to meet with a counselor one on one to address personal and/or academic concerns. Counselors work to promote positive social emotional growth amongst the students and provide regular and ongoing communication with parents and families. Through participation in ACE, students have access to team-building and educational trips, peer groups, peer tutoring, after school activities, and more. This program is sponsored through the generosity and valued partnership of the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development.
