"The ACE Summer Camp was truly one of the best experiences I've ever had, and I appreciate the opportunity to attend." - Brianna, Washington
"I just wanted to thank you for everything you did to make this week possible. It was an amazing experience, I learned so much and got to know so many cool people. I hope you continue to do this program as it was the highlight of my summer." - Jake, Nevada
“The trip to Denver was a fantastic experience, and I made friends that I still talk to today. It opened the door to a new city and environment and allowed me to adjust to college life almost two weeks before I went to college. The counselors and mentors were incredibly helpful and engaging with our work. Our activities and work sessions were always fun, even when we spent 7 to 8 hours working at the Architecture building and then going out to get pizza or going on a field trip to the amusement park.” - Braden, Pennsylvania.
“It was really fun! I met many new people, visited new places, and learned a lot!” – Student
