Parents Club

At Pace Academy, parents and caregivers are vital to the personality and culture of our school. Pace thrives as a result of parental involvement, and our parents thrive because they’re involved. The Parents Club is not a club parents must join—all parents are automatically members.

As an army of volunteers, the Parents Club enhances every area of campus life and raises funds to enrich the school. There’s a place for every parent to use their talents.

The Parents Club looks for strong leaders, as well as those who are more comfortable following; individuals with artistic talent and those who love crunching numbers; parents who enjoy fundraising and those who would never ask for a dime. Whether it’s chairing the Fall Fair or the Auction, stuffing a mailing or helping out in the library, recognizing our amazing faculty and staff or caring for those in need, there is an important job waiting for every parent at Pace! To learn more about volunteer opportunities or to get involved, please reach out to any of the officers or committee chairs listed below. 

Please visit MYPACE for volunteer signups for the 2023-2024 school year.

Thanks to our tireless volunteers, as well as our generous donors and event sponsors, the Parents Club is able to support the Citizens of the World Travel Grant program, which offers all students airfare for up to two Isdell Center for Global Leadership (ICGL) study tours—one in Middle School and one in Upper School. In addition, the Parents Club supports need-based student financial aid and faculty professional development.

Parents Club Events

Pace Auction & Gala

The Pace Parents Club Auction is the Parents Club’s signature fundraising event. Occurring annually, the Auction is always a hit—offering parents the opportunity to socialize and support Pace.

Pace Fall Fair

The Pace Fall Fair can’t be missed! Each fall, parent volunteers get together to plan the best fair out there—featuring Pace favorites like the Box Maze, the MASH tent and tons of inflatables and rides. Students and parents alike look forward to this day each autumn; mark your calendar early!
