This month we celebrate 18-year-old ACE scholar Jair O. who recently graduated with honors from Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colorado.
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 Wyoming.
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 2017, Wyoming joined 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.
