How ACE Works

The Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE), an AmeriCorps Indiana and Serve Indiana program, seeks to develop a corps of highly motivated and committed educators to meet the needs of our country's most underserved elementary and secondary schools.

Established in 1994, ACE now places over 180 college graduates in over 120 parochial schools throughout the United States.

To carry out its core teaching mission, ACE recruits talented graduates from colleges and universities across the country. ACE teachers represent a broad variety of undergraduate disciplines, with a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences. ACE provides an intensive two-year service experience encompassing professional development, community life, and spiritual growth. These three pillars are at the heart of the ACE program. ACE aims to provide excellence in education and to maximize opportunities for its participants' personal and professional growth.

Seeking to form leaders in Catholic schools, to prepare informed and active citizens for the world, and to provide high-quality educational opportunities for the under-served, ACE works tirelessly to provide a witness of hope.
