About ACE in Chile

Graduates of ACE and other UCCE programs are invited to apply for an 18-month post-graduate teaching experience in Santiago, Chile. "ChACErs" spend one academic year teaching English at Saint George's College in Santiago. Prior to their arrival in Chile, these teachers participate in an intensive Spanish language program in Ecuador.
