Academic excellence at Pace relies upon the school’s ability to attract and enroll students with remarkable intellectual promise and the desire to contribute to the life of the school—students who reflect the city and world in which we live and who value the essential role diverse perspectives provide in a learning community.
Because we believe that our student population should mirror the socio-economic diversity of our city, Pace awards need-based financial aid every year (over $4 million in 2022-2023), providing access and opportunity to the brightest and most remarkable young people across metro Atlanta.
Parent involvement at every level further enriches our community. Beginning in the Office of Admissions, we strive to welcome new families with warmth and authenticity and to make the transition to Pace as seamless as possible for both students and parents. Our students, parents, faculty and staff play vital roles in sharing the Pace story beyond our campus, and our ability to meet the changing needs of today’s prospective families using effective communications tools adds to our appeal.
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.
