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 ten 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.
