Recognizing Promise in Our Students
The mission of ACES is to increase baccalaureate degree attainment and professional success for students who have been historically underrepresented in the higher education system. ACES is a collaboration among Montgomery County Public Schools, Montgomery College, and the Universities at Shady Grove, designed to provide a structured and supportive pathway to college completion.
Together with our 14 high school partners, community college and university-based coaches, we invest in the promise of our students—helping them achieve their academic and professional dreams. ACES helps to make those dreams possible by providing the academic and college guidance, scholarship support, and career readiness students need to succeed.
