Family, Academics, Motivation, and Environment — “F.A.M.E.”
Academy for Creating Excellence (ACE) aims to prepare young men for individual excellence through our core principles of FAMILY, ACADEMICS, MOTIVATION, and ENVIRONMENT (F.A.M.E.) towards becoming viable world citizens.
ACE is built upon the premise of serving young men from historically under served populations. Specifically targeting African American, African Diaspora, Latino/Hispanic, Pacific Islander, and Native American males. At ACE, young men will learn compassion and understanding, a strong educational and cultural foundation, the value of perseverance and determination, and how to use their individual talents for the greater good in their community. Young men of ACE will be able to answer the existential question of, "Who Am I?" with a resounding answer of, "I AM EXCELLENCE!"
