The Academic Center for Enrichment (ACE)
The goal of the Academic Center for Enrichment (ACE) is to provide an inviting space where all students in grades 7-12, can access an added layer of support before, after, and during the school day. At Xaverian, an example of strength is asking for help and helping others.

Students of all abilities can utilize ACE to complete work, collaborate with peers, and access support. The support at ACE augments the important content help that is available from teachers in the academic centers. The ACE Coordinator works closely with faculty, school counselors, administrators, and families.

ACE offers the following supports:
  • Individual academic check-ins
  • Individual and small group academic work sessions and executive function skill development
  • Drop-in support
  • Collaborative or independent workspace
  • Peer tutoring

Skill development may focus on the following areas:

  • Planning and following through with available support from teachers 
  • Time management
  • Goal setting
  • Study and test-taking skills
  • Metacognition
  • Self-advocacy/communication
