Academic & Institutional Excellence

At Pace, academic excellence is our goal—and that starts with our outstanding faculty. We recruit and retain the highest-quality teacher cohort possible and encourage faculty to model lifelong learning for their students by investing in ongoing education and development. 

Supporting faculty members’ individual needs and goals is a top priority. We want them to explore educational opportunities that foster excellence in teaching, and we create opportunities for cross-divisional faculty learning and collaboration.

Because our expert faculty prepares students for the ever-changing world they will encounter, a Pace education includes innovative curricular and extra-curricular programming around science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM), as well as outstanding instruction in core subjects. 

To excel in these and other endeavors, Pace students in all divisions utilize our Academic Resource Center (ARC), which provides individualized academic assistance, particularly to those with learning differences. 

The combination of intellectual challenge and a nurturing environment ensures students graduate from Pace prepared for college—and, with one of the lowest student-counselor ratios in the Southeast, the Office of College Counseling thoughtfully guides students to their post-Pace homes.

Excellence in Every Endeavor: Pace Academy’s 2022-2027 Strategic Plan structures the school’s strategic endeavors around six focus areas: Academic & Institutional Excellence, Community & Communications, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Enrollment, Global Citizenship and Student Life & School Culture

With academic excellence and the student experience at the center, each focus area includes specific initiatives. Several initiatives span focus areas and are connected to themes of mental health and well-being, faculty development, parental support and the Pace brand.
