Community & Communications
Students, faculty, staff, parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni and friends make up the vibrant Pace community, a tapestry of constituencies whose engagement sustains the school and ensures that those beyond our campus regard Pace as a leader among our peers.
The Office of Advancement shepherds many of the relationships vital to Pace’s continued growth—with great success. The Pace Fund continues to support our goals and ever increasing aspirations; the Accelerate Pace campaign made the Kam Memar Lower School a reality; and alumni are actively involved in the life of the school like never before.
Thoughtful communications initiatives ensure that Pace is prepared to weather challenges like the COVID pandemic, promote the school within the greater community, and keep Pace community members near and far abreast of students’ triumphs and important developments. Through the Parents Club, Arts Alliance and Booster Club, a highly engaged corps of parent volunteers supports all facets of life on campus—from the Snack Bar to the sports fields and the Fine Arts Center to the Fall Fair.
Areas of Focus
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.
