Squash A.C.E.S. is Franklin & Marshall’s urban youth college access squash program. Launched in 2009. A.C.E.S. (Attitude, Community, Excellence and Scholarship) provides an after-school enrichment program focused on academic success and athletic skill development for underserved middle and high school students. Partnering with the School District of Lancaster, F&M staff and student volunteers mentor and support the student participants.
By providing squash courts and equipment, critical programming space and classrooms, as well as F&M student volunteers, Squash ACES is making a serious and long-term commitment to Reynolds Middle School and the McCaskey High School campuses as well as to the ACES students and their families.
Through the generosity of private supporters and foundations, Squash ACES continues to grow and help more students achieve in the classroom and on the squash court.
