The ACES ExperienceCampus:
Is English your second language? At St. Joseph’s College we have small classes, a friendly campus and professors who know your name and are invested in your success. But we don’t want you to just do well at St. Joseph’s. We want you to excel and that’s why we created ACES, a program especially for students whose first language is not English.
As an ACES student, you will take an advanced reading and writing course that gives you credits towards graduation and guarantees you the English skills and confidence you’ll need for success in college and beyond.
ACES provides additional academic support from experienced professors for as long as you need it. We’ll even help you with career counseling and admissions into the graduate school of your choice.
ACES offers fantastic cultural opportunities in conjunction with the Globe Spotters club. You'll make friends here from your first day on campus – and keep them for a lifetime.
ACES offers generous grants. In fact, joining the ACES program means that we’ll help pay your tuition, bringing the cost of a private college education within your reach, no matter what your finances look like.
