ACES – Quality, Affordable, Convenient
Guilford County Schools invites parents to choose the district’s After-School Care Enrichment Services (ACES) program for quality, affordable and convenient after-school care. ACES is the place where students in kindergarten through fifth grade can pursue academic excellence and develop friendships with schoolmates in a child-centered environment.
ACES provides a structured balance of academic, enrichment and recreational after-school activities with a child-to-staff ratio of 20:1. The program expands children’s experiences, extends their learning and provides warm and caring support. Involvement in ACES helps build positive school-family relationships and strengthens our schools’ educational partnership with parents and students.
ACES is offered every day that school is in session for students. The program begins as soon as the school day ends and operates until 6:00 p.m. On some teacher workdays, designated as ACES All-Days, the program operates from 7:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. On All-Days students enjoy field trips to local places or participate in special on-site activities. On the district's four Early Dismissal Days, ACES begins at the early dismissal time and operates until 6:00 p.m.
Nearly all elementary schools have an ACES program. Students attending an elementary school without a program may be able to attend a cluster-site ACES program at a near-by, designated elementary school. Information regarding cluster sites can be obtained from the students’ school or the district’s ACES Programs office.
ACES programs are licensed by the North Carolina Division of Child Development (NC-DCD) and can accept subsidy payments from agencies such as the Department of Social Services (DSS) or adoption services.
