Upper School

The Pace Academy Upper School is a place of connections. In the past 50+ years, we've grown in size and stature, but one element remains fixed—the relationships between our talented, nurturing faculty and our students.


With approximately 115 students in a grade and class sizes that average 12, the Pace Upper School is a place where students know their teachers as professionals and as people. Developing this connection is the core of what we do.

Students are challenged and grow in a supportive setting. Our faculty inculcates in students both the joy of learning and the worthiness of intellectual excellence. Pace graduates often return to campus describing how well prepared they were for their college academic careers, but mostly they come back to visit with their former teachers and spend time with people they consider mentors and friends.

Our students are involved in the life of their school and in the world around them. They want to succeed—but they want to do so while making a difference. We think that’s the measure of a true education.
