Demographic data has remained stable over the history of Project ACE. Most ACE students are female and Spanish-speaking. Women in the program comprise 75% of the ACE student population, and the majority of our students come from Cuba, Colombia, and Venezuela. As the program has grown, ACE has welcomed an increasing number of Haitian students in addition to international students from as far away as Cameroon, China, and Russia.
ACE courses are attractive to international students who wish to earn college credits while they are improving their English language skills; ACE is also well suited for students with strong academic backgrounds. Most ACE students intend to continue their studies after they finish the program. The most popular majors shown in the pie graphs reflect where ACE student interests tend to concentrate—in healthcare, education, and business programs.
