Student Life & School Culture
At Pace, we understand that healthy, happy students are better learners, and that academic excellence is only achievable when the whole child is supported. That’s why we have significantly expanded our counseling department and mental health programming in recent years, and why we offer curricular and extracurricular activities in the arts and athletics that are second to none.
We also deeply believe that it takes a village to raise a child, so we partner with parents to ensure the mental, social and physical health of all students and to support parents as they navigate the sometimes tumultuous waters of parenthood.
Calculated character-development programming undergirds our health and wellness efforts in all divisions. To become prepared, confident citizens of the world, we know that students must first be good citizens—in face-to-face interactions with others and in digital spaces.

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.
