We are Pace.
In 1958, an interfaith group of community leaders envisioned a stimulating learning environment open to fresh ideas and debate. From their vision, Pace Academy was born. We’d like to think that our school community today is exactly what our founders had in mind. With 1085 students in Pre-First through 12th grade and a 9:1 student-teacher ratio, Pace focuses on developing each child’s passions and strengths through academics, athletics and the arts. But we also understand that education today is more complicated than the three As; it’s about providing global perspectives in the classroom and an integrated experience before and after the bell rings. That’s why we emphasize Judeo-Christian values and why building character is at the heart of everything we do. Pace students, guided by our outstanding faculty and staff, develop a deep understanding of the world and the people around them. Our graduates want to be successful, and they realize that true success means making a positive difference. Because of our founders’ ability to THINK BIG, we now create prepared, confident citizens of the world who do the same. OUR
