The Academy for College Excellence sponsored by the Cabrillo College Foundation sees community colleges as engines of progress and prosperity in communities. To help community colleges adapt and live up to this role, we offer ideas and tools to transform the education experience for community college students, instructors, staff and administrators.  We help community colleges better serve the struggling-but-strong students now coming in search of a pathway toward upward mobility.

This video funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and developed by Kentucky Educational Television describes the ACE program and how it helps at-risk students many who have dropped out of school.
