Christian Dallavis is the Director of Notre Dame ACE Academies. What’s an ACE Academy? Quoting their website: “The Notre Dame ACE Academies are Catholic schools that provide an excellent Catholic education to the children in the communities they serve. NDAA schools strive to remove the cost barrier for families whenever possible.”
In this discussion with Learning Matters web producer Ted Bauer, Dallavis discusses the three parish schools on the south side of Tucson, Arizona that are serving as the pilot program for ACE Academies. He also talks about faith-based education, the one trait shared by all successful schools, and successfully serving the educational needs of an immigrant community.
