Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES) is a collaborative program that seeks to create a seamless pathway from high school to college completion. A collaboration among MCPS, Montgomery College and the Universities at Shady Grove, ACES focuses on identifying and supporting students who come from backgrounds that are underrepresented in higher education and those who are the first in their family to attend college. If accepted, students will be assigned an academic coach during their 11th and 12th grades. Coaching and support through Montgomery College and Universities at Shady Grove will continue for ACES students who choose to attend these institutions.
ACES APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED
Free Ride-On Bus Service Ends In January

Montgomery County library and in the Counseling Office at Kennedy High School.
