Parent Council


The ACE Parent Council is made up of parents of all students at ACE. Board officers meet monthly and the Parent Council body meets several times during the school year (those meeting dates to be announced with the first meeting in September).

The main purpose of the Parent Council is to benefit the students at ACE by providing support to ACE Academy. Parents can sign up for volunteer opportunities and a variety of active fund raising efforts, such as the Annual Fund and the Spring Gala, as well as passive fundraisers, such as Boxtops for Education and Amazon Smile.

For up-to-date information and a list of current officers, please visit the ACE Academy Parent Council FB page:
