A Night Out With Keeping Pace
For the past four years, Pace Academy parents, faculty, staff and friends have joined forces to support Keeping Pace, an academic summer program for students from under-resourced communities that takes place on our campus. This year, A Night Out with Keeping Pace is back in person and promises to be better than ever before.
Purchase tickets, register to bid and join us this Wednesday, Nov. 10, at 6:30 p.m. at Urban Tree Cidery for a casual evening celebrating this life-changing program. We’ll have tasting stations including gourmet pizzas, pastas and salads from Bites by Eydt and Joey D’s Oak Room, warm chocolate chip cookies, Urban Tree’s hard cider, and beer and wine.
Those attending in person will also have the opportunity to bid on exclusive live-auction items like an on-campus sophomore parking spot, four one-day park hopper tickets to Disney World Orlando, a chef's table experience at Local Three Kitchen & Bar and judging duties (with VIP parking!) during Spirit Week 2022.
If you can’t make the event, you can still register for A Night Out with Keeping Pace’s online auction (now open!) and bid on one-of-a-kind items and experiences.

About Keeping Pace
Keeping Pace, founded in 2006, is a summer program at Pace Academy serving middle- and high-school students from Atlanta's Peoplestown, English Avenue and Vine City neighborhoods, south of downtown Atlanta. In the shadow of the former Braves stadium, these underserved communities offer few to no summer options to youth of this age. The typical Keeping Pace Scholar is a student “caught in the middle”—not required to attend summer school for remediation, but not a likely candidate for other prestigious metro summer programs for underserved youth. Keeping Pace does not charge an application fee to attend; its only requirement is that Scholars have the ability to attend and the motivation to participate.
Each summer, the program offers Scholars six weeks of academic enrichment, along with swimming and recreation, special guest presentations, and off-campus field trips. Scholars also receive bus transportation to and from camp, meals and snacks, and all supplies needed for coursework. Pace Academy faculty members staff the program, and Pace Upper School students serve as counselors and tutors.
