ACE bus hits the road

Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) bus

The Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) bus—illustrated with the names of every Catholic school in the United States—made a stop near Grace Hall recently.

This fall the bus will be the centerpiece of the Fighting for Our Children’s Future National Bus Tour which will bring Notre Dame and ACE to more than 40 cities to honor students, teachers, and supporters, and to celebrate the benefits Catholic schools provide for children, families, communities, the nation and the Church.

ACE was founded in 1993 as a service initiative sending graduate students to teach in under-resourced Catholic schools, but has grown to offer a comprehensive array of leadership formation initiatives, professional services and partnerships to the country’s Catholic schools.

Expect the bus and its message of hope to draw crowds before the Fighting Irish play in Dallas Cowboys Stadium Oct. 5, when the Navy team visits South Bend Nov. 2, and throughout the year in cities from Los Angeles to New York. Follow the journey at
