The Time is Now
Learning Can’t Wait
We are facing a crisis in our country. There are 30 million children from low-income families and only 2 out of 10 are proficient in math or reading. When we see the crisis in education today, we recognize that far too many kids are not graduating from school. The system has not been successful for generation after generation. So it is time to try something new. ACE Scholarships is changing lives by giving deserving low-income families the choice to pick the school that best fits them.
Level the Playing Field
ACE Scholarships is helping narrow the gap by providing partial scholarships to children from low-income families. ACE scholars have a 90% average graduation rate and are graduating college at the same rate as their peers from higher socioeconomic statuses. The impact of a quality education also expands beyond the classroom. ACE scholars are more likely to spend more time volunteering, eat together as a family, and be more involved in civics.
