What is Texas ACE?

The Texas Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE) program is one of the largest statewide afterschool programs in the country, serving over 180,000 students at nearly 1,000 sites. The ACE program is administered by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and is funded through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative of the U.S. Department of Education. 

What We Do

The Brady Elementary ACE  Program offers free before and afterschool programming to students in K-5th grade who qualify for our program.  Once you have filled out your ACE application and your child has been accepted into the ACE program, your child will have access to:

  • Tutorials for students before and after school;
  • Enrichment activities for students to explore science, technology and the arts;
  • Activities and training that help families support their students to be successful at school; &
  • Guidance and field trips that help students and their families access information about college and careers.

The overarching goal of the program is to foster each student’s academic success by improving attendance, behavior and academics which lead to grade level promotion, graduation and helping students be more prepared for college and the workplace.

When is ACE offered?

The Brady Elementary ACE program is offered Monday-Friday from 6:35 am-7:50 am & Monday-Thursday from 3:30 pm-5:30 pm.  Afterschool bus service is  available Monday-Thursday at 5:30 pm.  ACE is not offered on school holidays and no afterschool ACE on early release days.  We encourage your child to attend ACE every time it is offered but daily attendance is not mandatory.
