The Faith Family Academy 21st Century ACE program in partnership with the Dallas Metropolitan YMCA, exists to support student and parent success through a safe and enriching afterschool program delivery.

Texas Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE), administered by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), offer structured, safe, and supervised places for learning and social interaction. ACE provides expanded learning opportunities for children and their families and offers innovative, hands-on activities that reinforce and complement students' regular academic programs. These before and after school activities are based on research and best practices and include academic enrichment, challenging curriculum, and tutorial services. ACE strives to increase promotion and graduation rates and to help prepare students for college and the workplace.
