Keeping Pace

Thank you for your interest in attending Keeping Pace, an enriching summer program! This summer program is a 5-and-a-half-week camp where Pace Scholars receive instruction and actively participate in the program at Pace Academy. Children from our partner neighborhoods entering grades 6-9 and qualifying for free or reduced lunch may apply to be a Pace Scholar. Returning Pace Scholars entering grades 10-12 may apply for one of several leadership positions and participate in our pre-college program.


Summer scholarships are limited. We will accept applications beginning February 15. Returning students are given first priority, and other students are accepted on a rolling basis. We will notify each applicant regarding enrollment status as soon as possible, typically within three weeks of receiving your application.


Camp is Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Camp provides all the meals and transportation to and from Peoplestown and the Westside, as well as all necessary materials. Campers should wear comfortable clothing and close-toed shoes. Please bring a swimsuit and towel every day.
