Academic Center for Excellence


The ACE mission is to insure our retention numbers are high through the use of educational concept of "scaffolding" in the development and support of midshipmen. This goal requires help from the mentoring and professional members of the USMMA community. The ACE provides midshipmen with the support and instruction they need to achieve their academic goals and be successful in their educational pursuit. At the Center, midshipmen can develop effective learning habits that will prove to be beneficial, not only during their time at the Academy, both ashore and afloat, and beyond graduation as well.
