ACES is an innovative, out-of-school time program that provides intentional, project-based curriculum and learning experiences that bring math, sports, and social-emotional learning to life for kindergarten through eighth grade students

ACES’s daily programming, offered before school, focuses on building math and social-emotional skills, while making content relevant and engaging. ACES programming consists of the following components:

  • Small-group classroom sessions: Expert Academic Coaches lead groups of students through our hands-on, project-based curriculum. Lessons reinforce the foundational mathematics concepts students learn during the school day and support social-emotional development.

  • Homework support: ACES Academic Coaches facilitate structured time for students to receive support and complete school-day homework, one-on-one or in small groups.

  • Large-group field trips: Students participate in at least one large group field trip per month. From behind-the-scenes tours of the Vikings Practice Facility to a conversation with Minnesota Twins Managers, these unique experiences help learning come to life!

Programing is free for 4th - 8th grade students. There is a yearly fee for students in kindergarten - 3rd grade.
