ACE Charter Schools is a network of public schools that has been preparing middle and high schools students in urban San Jose to be the first in their families to attend and graduate from a four-year college since 2008. ACE is committed to attracting families who have seen their children struggle profoundly in elementary school and to rekindle and inspire an optimism about school and college success for these students and families. ACE students’ academic results justify and reinforce this growing optimism, with ACE’s 8th graders outperforming their peers at top comparable schools in the state and 98% of ACE’s 2016 high school graduates completing A-G course requirements making them eligible for entry into a four-year public college.
