Academic Creative Engagement (ACE)

  • Qualifies for 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) funds.
  • Continues the legacy of tennis champion Arthur Ashe.

ACE is not homework, it does not duplicate classroom work. Instead ACE combines academic activities with tennis activities, academic achievements with tennis achievements.

ACE is a rewarding experience for both mentors and students.

Engage kids
in learning.

ACE is for after-school students in the formative 3rd to 5th grades. However, you can use it in other grades. Use ACE to enrich your after school program once or twice a week.

ACE provides student programs and mentoring materials for:

  • 50 activities that stimulate thinking, writing and math skills.
  • Arthur Ashe essay contest training.
  • Thought-provoking who-am-I posters and puzzles.

Materials follow guidelines of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), and state standards.

ACE targets third to fifth graders, but can be used for other grades. Add ACE to after school programs once or twice a week.

ACE provides these student and mentoring materials:

  • 50 thinking, writing, and math activities
  • Arthur Ashe essay contest training.
  • Who-am-I posters and puzzles.

ACE follows National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) standards.

Build kids’
strengths.

ACE sessions are 45 minutes of tennis and 45 minutes of academics. Set up tennis training inside or outside. ACE provides all mentors with a full day of training from NJTL of Trenton and 1/2 from an area tennis instructor.

Give kids
a voice.

ACE is a confidence-building program that invites outsiders in. What a child learns about respect and courtesy through ACE translates to self-respect and participation in the classroom. ACE is now in 60 communities throughout the United States.
