ACES Program Alumni

Kai Lian Chen ‘08

Kai Lian Chen had only been in the U.S. for two years when she entered the ACES Program at SJC. She loved her biology class in high school and she majored in biology at St. Joseph’s.

During her senior year, Kai Lian was accepted at SUNY Downstate College of Medicine — an accomplishment she attributes in part to her experience in the ACES program.

“It was great to be in a freshman English class where I could feel comfortable working to improve my essay writing," she said.

"The ACES professors also helped me prepare presentations and papers for other classes, so that I could keep my grades high enough to get into medical school.”
