There’s a crisis in American education. Too many kids from lower-income families are falling between the cracks simply because they’re stuck in failing schools and can’t afford any other options. And it’s happening right here in New Mexico.
ACE Scholarships was founded in 2000 to provide these lower-income parents with school choice for their families through partial scholarships to K-12 private schools. In 2012, ACE Scholarships expanded its efforts nationally, to help more students receive the opportunity to have a choice in their K-12 education career. Montana was the second state of ACE’s national efforts.
ACE serves the children of lower-income families, the majority of which qualify for the federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program.
