Description: The Alliance for Catholic Education, or ACE, uses Joomla 2.5 to manage their multifaceted web presence. ACE is a collaborated effort of twelve different programs all working to strengthen and sustain Catholic schools in the United States. Joomla, along with the Gantry framework, allows ACE to maintain twelve unique sites in one through the use of Joomla and Gantry's multiple template options (eg: http://ace.nd.edu/teach is a unique homepage for one of the programs within the site). All of ACE's units build off the same Joomla instance and database, maintain a strong visual connection to the main homepage and also share the same features for all members of the organization including: an integrated news feed, online membership, a JomSocial Network, several blogs, a job-board and an online catalog of publications.
Some of ACE's favorite extensions are: Yootheme's Zoo, Sh404sef, JCE, JSPT and Socialable's Autogroup.
ACE worked closely with Cloudaccess.net to develop the site.
Future plans involve integrating a CRM (CiviCRM) to function within the Joomla framework.

is it joomla
how can i download this template?
Thanks. These have been fixed.What would your star-rating be with them fixed?
Excellent design and graphics. A really well done presentation.
clean design and easy to navigate
CloudAccess.net created this template from a Custom PSD made by our internal design staff. We call our method the real design process. Through the real design process you first draw a Photo Shop version of the site in layers and get approval from the client on the views. The client is provided pdf or jpg views of what the template will look like. This process happens between artist and customer. After we complete the design process with approval from client our front end Joomla coders bolt the design work to the gantry framework. We do this live with the client watching every move we make. We provide the same services with custom applications.
We had a great time building this with Ricky and his team from Notre Dame. Ricky has some powerful planning and Ideas. I was happy to see the final result of both of our teams work.
Nice menu, good layout. Good job!
Very nice, Excellent design and great menu system
Just wondered what the template is called or is it custom
It's custom, but its built off Cloudbase 2.0 from http://cloudaccess.net
Very impressed with this website, great attention to detail - love the subtle ornamentation on the hover state for the main menu links.
