  Welcome to ACES

Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES) is a collaborative effort between Montgomery College, Montgomery County Public Schools, and the Universities at Shady Grove to support students and provide a seamless path to a bachelor's degree.

The ACES student support program provides academic coaches to targeted high school students in thirteen Montgomery County Public High Schools; at all three Montgomery College campus locations; and at the Universities at Shady Grove. The coaches provide both academic and student support, using a case management approach. Coaches meet individually with students and provide:

  • Test preparation;
  • Tutoring;
  • Assistance with college applications and financial aid/scholarship applications;
  • College visits;
  • College transfer workshops;
  • Other support services as needed

ACES coaches identify and neutralize barriers to student success that may prevent a student from degree completion.

The ACES program is not affiliated with College Admissions Assistance, LLC (CAA). We do not request money from students or their parents for program services.
