The Irvine Public Schools Foundation’s ACE program is a high-quality district-wide program that provides opportunities for students in elementary and middle school to participate in classes both fun and academic while staying in their school environment. These fee-based enrichment classes are coordinated by volunteers at each of the school sites and are taught by pre-approved professionals. Classes offered include art, chess, languages, sports, digital animation/filmmaking as well as homework help, math and science classes. More than 4,200 students benefit from ACE classes each year.
