ACE after school program

ACE Afterschool Center on Education

  •  

     

    In Texas, the 21st CCLC program is called the Texas Afterschool Centers on Education program, or Texas ACE. Texas ACE programs aim to improve student attendance, behavior, and academics, while providing safe supplemental learning space for students and families who otherwise would not have such opportunities. These grant-funded programs provide high quality supplemental enrichment activities that align with the regular academic program; and programs are encouraged to deliver those activities in creative, hands-on, and exploratory ways. TEA funds local Texas ACE programs through a competitive peer-review process.
