ACE in the City:
ACE is proud to partner with Corpus Christi, a city with a big Catholic school community. Since 1996, 20 ACE teachers have called this community home, and there are currently six ACE teachers in three Corpus Christi schools: John Paul II High School, Bishop Garriga Middle Preparatory School, and St. Anthony of Padua School in Robstown. Of the 20 ACE graduates, 13 are still active in education, and eight continue to serve as teachers in Catholic schools around the country.

The John G. and Marie Stella Kenedy Memorial Foundation
Sarita Kenedy East established the foundation in 1960 to support and fund Catholic educational, charitable, and religious activities in Texas, primarily in the region of the Diocese of Corpus Christi (as that entity then existed).
The mission of the Foundation is to nurture and advance activities which contribute to the following core values:
Helping break the cycle of poverty
Assisting people to help themselves
Nurturing support and love for Catholic institutions
Developing the Catholic faith
The Foundation encourages grants with large “ripple effects,” that is, those which generate benefits which spread beyond their primary grantee into the wider community, as well as “seed money” grants, whereby Foundation support provides a needed catalyst or first step to very significant, and preferably ongoing, positive core value effects.
