The L.A.C.E. Institute is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization designed specifically to support the development and life-matriculation of young girls.

The mission of the Institute is to provide young girls with Life Currency, the tools that will help mold them into leaders, inventors, philosophers, and academicians.

The Institute enrolls students who are bright, curious, motivated, and show strong academic and personal promise. The successful student embraces our progressive curriculum and thrives on the connections made between experiential learning and the world.  The Institute prepares students to be progressive independent thinkers.  Institute students gain a strong sense of self and purpose, and graduates continue on to become leaders in their respective fields.

As an institution and as individuals, we value courage, commitment, strong character, integrity, and servanthood. We are committed to positive thinking, ingenuity, and forward movement.

Our instruction will operate to distinguish Institute students from their peers and provide them with a significant advantage in employment and social fronts.  It is our hope that the confidence our girls exude, will breed confidence in others and encourage them to follow the paths our students lay.  We further hope to create permanent systemic changes in our students' communities through student instruction, parental cooperation, and community involvement.

Accordingly, the Instituteís Internal Control System is designed to get reasonable assurance about effectiveness and efficiency of operations, reliability of financial and statistical data, and compliance of applicable rules, regulations, and procedures.

Clear policies and procedures, documentation process, table of authority, segregation of staff duties, supervision and accountability have made the organization transparent. Considering the internal control a continuous process, the Institute periodically reviews the system and makes modifications according to circumstances.   At the top of its control mechanism, there exists the willingness of the Instituteís governing body to ensure internal control and transparency.
