When Caroline Gray ’07 was a student at Pace Academy, study-abroad opportunities represented just a fraction of today’s Isdell Center for Global Leadership (ICGL) study-tour menu. Still, Gray graduated with a surplus of service hours and a trip to France (one of Pace’s earliest international tours) under her belt. Pace’s mission of global citizenship resonated with Gray then and continues to inform her course in life today.
The Pace Academy alumni network seeks to make the Pace experience a meaningful, relevant, and purposeful part of the lives of Pace alumni and the greater Pace community. Every Pace graduate is automatically welcomed into the Alumni Association.
