To support the work of Student ACES, Bank of America donated their bank building for complete renovation in turning it into the Student ACES Center or The SAC. Through the efforts of staff, community leaders and mentors, The SAC provides leadership, academic and athletic support for High School ACE students in the Glades area. The SAC provides learning pathways, many of which were suggested by the students themselves, to build concrete knowledge on the hot topics that students will face within their current life and future experiences.
The Mission of the SAC
The SAC’s mission is to inspire and develop high school student athletes, in the Glades Region, to become men and women of honor, character through wrap around student services at The SAC. Student ACES provides key programming encompassing our seven guiding principles, which are: character, academic advising, career readiness, college prep, health and wellness, mental health, and personal portfolio. We are devoted to the growth and development of high school students through a research informed process using the poverty to prosperity model to positively impact this community of high needs.
