Notre Dame ACE Academies

The Notre Dame ACE Academy initiative is an innovative university-school partnership program that effects comprehensive school excellence in regional clusters of partner schools.  The Notre Dame ACE Academies represent a unique model of urban Catholic schooling, supported by parental choice scholarships, the resources of the University‚Äôs Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE), and partnering dioceses.  In the Notre Dame ACE academies, pastors and bishops delegate certain responsibilities to a regional board of specified jurisdiction, and ACE provides comprehensive school support that attends to multiple dimensions of schooling in the areas of Catholic identity, stewardship, and teaching/learning.
