ACE (Texas Afterschool Centers on Education) BES

Due to the extensive water damage to our campus, we will only be offering virtual afterschool ACE on the 2/22 and 2/23 beginning at 4 PM.  Students were invited through their google classroom.  An elementary ace teacher will be available to help your child with homework.  Following homework help hour the students are invited to participate in our Sign Language enrichment club. 

You can also click here on Virtual ACE and enter the following code to participate.

Thank you for your patience as we try to find the best way to provide a safe and effective ACE program during these challenging times.  We are tentatively set to resume onsite ACE this Wednesday.  If anything changes, you will be notified through School Messenger and can find information on our ACE page.

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.  If your child qualifies, you will be contacted and given an  ACE application to complete and return.  Once your child has been accepted into the ACE program, your child will have access to:

  • Homework assistance 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 for our morning homework help session & Monday-Thursday from 3:30 pm-5:30 pm for our afterschool homework help and enrichment club sessions.  Afterschool bus service is  available Monday-Thursday at 5:30 pm.  If you have a remote student that qualifies for our program they may have access to a remote teacher.  Please contact us to set up a time for remote help.  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.
