ACES Summer Programs
July 8 – July 19, 2019
The ACES summer program is one of the most important components of the ACES program. Every student accepted into ACES their sophomore year will have the opportunity to spend 10 days on one of three Montgomery College Campuses (Rockville, Germantown or Takoma Park) during the summer prior to their junior year. The summer program is designed to give students a glimpse of what it is like to attend classes in a college facility, build rapport with their fellow classmates and ACES staff members, as well as participate in academic and social enrichment activities.
During the “Mission Possible” summer program, ACES scholars engage in a full menu of college preparatory activities such as academic enrichment coursework, workshops, and team building. The academic enrichment courses will focus on increasing literacy and math skills. The workshops and team building sessions focus on social-emotional development. These courses are designed to increase scholars’ skills and abilities to have a head start for the upcoming school year.
Each day, scholars will be transported from their respective high school to their assigned Montgomery College campus by a Montgomery County Public School bus. Pick-up and drop-off times vary based on the school’s distance from the campus. The bus schedule will be provided at a later date.
