The ACES program is a collaboration between MCPS, Montgomery College (MC), and the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) to create a seamless pathway from high school to college completion. ACES focuses on identifying and supporting students who are underrepresented in higher education, the first in their family to attend college, or both. In 2014–2015, students in Grades 11 and 12 at 10 high schools participated in the second year of ACES. These students are the focus of this report which is one in a series of reports on outcome evaluations of ACES. This document describes students' academic success, applications to and attendance plans for college, and applications for financial aid, along with any differences across student subgroups.
