Preparing for launch

Guided by the 2016-2021 Strategic Plan, the Pace Academy Board of Trustees, in partnership with the West Paces Neighborhood Association, spent more than three years refining plans for a state-of-the-art addition to the Lower School. 

Throughout the development process, Pace leadership envisioned a space that would support the school’s strategic vision and accelerate the values we hold dear: joy, play, giving, creativity, wellness, innovation and community. 

The Accelerate Pace campaign is rallying Pace parents, students, faculty, staff, alumni, grandparents and friends to raise $35 million, the campaign’s phase-one goal, for the new Kam Memar Lower School and updates to the Lower School classroom building—facilities that will support the school’s strategic vision and ensure academic and institutional excellence for this and future generations of Pace Knights. Accelerate Pace phase two, to renovate and restore the Castle, will be underway after completion of phase one.
