Achieving a College Education (ACE) Program

ACE Program/Course Benefits:

  • Smaller class size
  • More personalized attention
  • Access to a mentor
  • Students can earn up to a year of college credits accepted by all Arizona universities and many others throughout the country
In order to qualify for the ACE program, you must be a sophomore in high school and meet two of the following requirements:

  • First generation in your family to attend college
  • Living in a single parent home, foster care or temporary housing
  • Be a part of an underrepresented group
  • Going through economic hardship
  • Have a sibling or relative who was an ACE participant (legacy)
  • Be a teen parent

Primavera has partnered with Rio Salado Community College, which means college courses are online. If you prefer to take in-person classes, you can enroll at any other Maricopa Community College.

The deadline to apply for the ACE program is early December. Contact your guidance counselor for more information.
