ACE by the Numbers
The current ACE student body for 2016-17 is over 600 members, comprised of students pursuing Associate’s Degrees in Business Administration, Human Services, Early Childhood Education and Law and Justice at nine community sites across southeastern Pennsylvania. ACE students are in Philadelphia, the city of Chester and borough of Upper Darby in Delaware County, the city of Coatesville in Chester County and the city of Reading in Berks County and represent the diversity of their respective communities.
50% of ACE students are 25-44 years of age, earning degrees that will equip them for new careers, promotions and higher earnings for the rest of their working lives. Another 20% of ACE students are between the ages of 45 and 64 – proving that it’s never too late to go back to school. And 30% are ages 16-24, young adults beginning a career pathway who realize that they need a college degree versus a high school diploma alone to equip them for lifelong success.
