Arts Alliance

Pace Academy’s visual and performing arts community continues to thrive, with more than 85 percent of students participating in one or more disciplines. Formed in 2010, the Pace Arts Alliance (PAA) plays an important role in the ongoing promotion of Pace Arts by supporting Lower School, Middle School and Upper School arts faculty and their programs, increasing awareness of all arts activities, and raising funds for ancillary student experiences in the visual and performing arts.
