ACE Collaborative for Academic Excellence

The ACE Collaborative for Academic Excellence is a curriculum development process that ensures strength in curriculum, instruction, and assessment in Catholic schools. Teachers and administrators from each school in our diocese worked with the University of Notre Dame to develop a consistent diocesan curriculum. This curriculum utilizes a variety of state and national standards as source documents to then build a curriculum for our diocese that ensures rigor, a commitment to Catholic education, and a prioritization of skills and standards.
