Pace Center for Girls provides girls and young women a safe and caring environment to learn, grow and create a bright new future. Our nationally recognized evidence-based model balances academics and social services for middle and high school aged girls.
Our Centers are open year-round, Monday through Friday, to provide academic instruction along with life skills, coaching and counseling to offer a holistic experience to help girls face their past and prepare for their future.
Prior to entry, every girl receives an in-depth assessment to ensure that Pace's program meets their individual needs. We know that girls face increasingly tough challenges and our individual and group counseling services support girls with tools to help them respond appropriately and confidently to obstacles in their lives.
Our small classes, led by certified teachers, allow for one-on-one guidance to help each girl reach her academic potential. Each Center's curriculum aligns with the public school district, which ensures a smoother transition back to a girl's neighborhood school.
