ACE, Andover Coalition for Education, is a donor fund with ECCF, Essex County Community Foundation. ACE supports major, multi-year, curricula-enhancing initiatives across the Andover Public School system. Since 2006, ACE funded the Grants Coordinator for the district, a new Language Lab for the High School, interactive white boards, and engineering programs.
