THINK BIG. It’s a familiar and often-used phrase within the Pace community, and it applies first and foremost to our academic experience.
It means we strive to create an innovative learning environment through collaboration, challenging and inclusive curriculum, outstanding teaching and co-curricular offerings. It means we require students to plug into the world around them, push beyond their comfort zones and accomplish things they never thought possible. It means we inspire young minds to engage.
We start small to make these big things happen by focusing on the individual student, maintaining small class sizes, emphasizing meaningful student-teacher relationships and fostering a nurturing community. It’s all about balance. While we set the bar high, we provide students the support they need to reach and exceed expectations so they become engaged learners who take risks, ask questions, think critically and communicate well.
Our faculty is central to Pace’s culture and is the driving force behind our academic program’s success. With freedom to create curriculum and use a variety of pedagogical styles, our teachers help develop world-class, confident learners inside and outside the classroom. Because we connect learning to life at every level, students leave Pace equipped with the skills and confidence to THINK BIG and become leaders in today's global community.
Academic Resource Center (ARC)
Pace provides academic support to students, as well as to faculty and parents. Our Learning Specialists are available during school hours and after school to assist students. With this support, students learn study skills and strategies for acquiring, maintaining, recalling and applying information at each grade level. This includes organizational skills, effective time management, recording new information and test-taking strategies.
With three full-time college counselors, Pace offers extensive resources for students and parents in the area of college counseling. Because of our small class size and knowledgeable staff, each student is given the careful, thorough attention necessary to find the college that best suits their academic, co-curricular and personal profile.
Pace students have opportunities to connect with other students and experts across the globe through curricular, co-curricular and hands-on activities; community and global partnerships; local field trips; a speaker series; leadership fellowships and internships; community engagement projects at home and abroad; and domestic and international study tours.
