The A.C.E. Foundation is a Florida not-for-profit organization established to promote high quality public education by supporting charter school initiatives in order to expand their capacity in serving the local community. In partnership with several Title I charter schools in Florida, the A.C.E. Foundation aims to provide high quality after school academic instruction, summer school programming that combines academics with extracurricular activities, and other initiatives.
The charter schools supported by the A.C.E Foundation have excelled at bringing high performing educational programs to neighborhoods across Florida with the greatest need. A large percentage of the students served by these schools come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and would otherwise have limited quality educational options in their communities.
