Our Campus


Most Atlantans associate Pace Academy with Kirkpatrick Hall, our iconic “Castle” with its arched entryway, towering turrets and leaded windows. Pace first found its home within this beloved building’s granite walls, but our current footprint extends far beyond what fronts W. Paces Ferry Road.

From the rear of the Castle, you’ll gaze out over the 34 acres of gardens, fields and facilities that make up our main campus. A satellite athletic complex is home to our student-athletes and their spirited fans.

There’s simply too much to see in one visit, but here’s a look at several of the spaces that make Pace.

Kirkpatrick Hall

Kirkpatrick Hall

In 1931, John Ogden finished constructing his family's home on 20 acres in Buckhead. The newly formed Pace Academy acquired the Ogden property in 1958, and the home, now Kirkpatrick Hall, served as the school’s first classroom building. It now houses Pace’s administrative offices.

The Lower School

Lower School

The Randall House, a former family home, houses our Lower School. Renovations in 2007 added outdoor learning space for Pre-First students as well as new classrooms. The building’s cafeteria, a frequent gathering place, serves our 375 Lower School students as well as the teachers, parents, grandparents and friends who join them for lunch every day.

The Garcia Family Middle School

Garcia Family Middle School

Completed in 2004, the Garcia Family Middle School’s 57,000 square feet includes 25 classrooms and labs, faculty offices, a computer lab, and studio space for our Middle and Upper School strings students. Each grade enjoys its own floor, atop which sits Knights Hall, an assembly space where Middle School students gather each morning for announcements and a daily, student-led “Inspirational Moment.”

Arthur M. Blank Family Upper School

Arthur M. Blank Family Upper School

Our Upper School students call the 75,000-square-foot Arthur M. Blank Family Upper School home. The state-of-the-art building opened in 2014 and includes the Woodruff Library, student common areas, state-of-the-art classrooms and labs, our Academic Resource Center, deans’ offices and a college-counseling suite.

The Fine Arts Center

Fine Arts Center

Constructed in 1990, our Fine Arts Center boasts a painting and drawing studio; classrooms for ceramics, sculpture, chorus, band and drama; a traditional darkroom; a computer lab for digital photography, graphic design and yearbook; a stagecraft workshop; exhibit and event space; and a state-of-the-art theatre.

Main Campus Athletic Facilities

Weight Room

There’s never a shortage of athletic activity on our campus. With two gymnasiums, a natatorium, an indoor track, gymnastics and wrestling facilities, a climbing wall, tennis courts, practice fields, and a fitness center and weight room, our student-athletes have everything they need to compete at the highest levels.

Riverview Sports Complex

Walsh Field

Because more than 85 percent of our Middle and Upper School students wear Knights jerseys, Pace’s footprint expanded in 2005 to include a satellite athletic facility.

Pace's Riverview Sports Complex is an easy 6-mile drive from our main campus. The complex includes Charlie Owens Field, Walsh Field, a softball field, a track, a multi-purpose practice field, locker rooms, an athletic training facility and a snack bar.
