AACE at Roosevelt Middle School
The mission of AACE is to help students get to college. At Roosevelt, we offer tutoring and help students learn about college and future careers through field trips and presentations. AACE is funded by a TRIO grant from the U.S. Department of Education. All of our services are free. All students need to complete an application to participate in AACE activities.
AACE offers drop-in tutoring at lunch during Mondays and Wednesdays in B1 (4th period lunch) and the library (5th period lunch.)
Kristin Tatum (AACE Educational Advisor) and part-time AACE tutors work with students.
