What Do We Do?
Through intensive tutorials and exciting enrichment activities with students and families from low performing schools and economically disadvantaged populations...
“The Bartlett Independent School District and the ACE Program believes each student to be a unique individual with the potential to develop a high degree of physical, moral and social accountability. The ACE Program provides students with extra opportunities to engage in hands on academic learning, while meeting the needs of every student with differentiation. We are making a difference one student at a time. “ ~ Erin Beilss-Perez, Site Coordinator

Who Are We?

Center, Region 13 (ESC 13) and the Austin Community College (ACC).

Our program is vital to the climate of our school. Students have a safe place to stay before school and after school instead of being out on their own. Our students receive focused attention and affirmation from adults that they might never receive outside of school. Through this program we are building relationships that sustain students for life.” ~ Sandi Wynn, Site Coordinator
“My desire is for our community and society to slow down enough so that they might reorient themselves to the timeless and mandatory principles and values that should govern the education and rearing of children. I believe the concept of sacrificial love, a sound moral education, and the inspiration of creative thought should be components of any child development program.  If the ACE program can plant a seed for such a reorientation in the hearts of our community’s stakeholders, I would personally feel that I have answered my calling in this phase of leading the ACE program. “
~ Orin Moore, Site Coordinator
"As a little girl I was given the opportunity to attend afterschool and summer programs that helped me develop skill and believe in myself. So, I see this as an opportunity for me to give back and make a difference in the lives of the families I work with and to let our children know they are loved. I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to pass it on and I do believe it takes a village to raise a child." ~ Brynette Smith, Site Coordinator
