Academic Center for Excellence


The Academic Center for Excellence(ACE) at Hammond is located in the heart of our middle and upper schools. With easy access to classrooms and the library, students of all ages find it to be a wonderful resource for academic guidance and support. Whether they are seeking a place to study individually or in small groups, tutoring in a particular subject, a quiet place to make up a test, or guidance from one of our staff members, the ACE is eager to help. Parents and teachers often drop in or set up appointments to gather information and collaborate as well. The ACE is busy making a difference in the lives of our students.

Philosophy and Goals

Hammond is committed to providing an educational environment which challenges children of all ages to develop skills which will prepare them to be successful in the college setting and beyond. The Academic Center for Excellence is a resource for all Hammond students and teachers to support the learning process. Our primary goal in the ACE is to teach students how to become effective students and self-advocates.
