About Pace Athletics

Physical education in the Lower School develops basic movement skills and athletic fundamentals while encouraging fun. Our curriculum uses a wide variety of skill-based activities to build cardiovascular endurance, muscle development, agility and speed. We also offer an after-school intramural program to fourth- and fifth-grade students.

In Middle School, students may participate in 26 competitive teams, many of which have no-cut policies and practice during the school day as part of physical education. Eighty-four percent of Upper School students play at least one sport and may choose from 41 competitive teams. Pace competes in the Georgia High School Athletic Association (GHSA) Class AAAA Region 5.
