Welcome to Pace Hernando
About Pace Hernando
The Pace Center for Girls in Hernando County was founded in 2018 to serve middle and high school girls who are struggling but want to make positive changes in their lives. As a movement, Pace was founded in 1985 to provide an opportunity for young women and girls to create a better future through education, counseling, training, and advocacy. Girls attend Pace during the day and are enrolled in all academic classes taught by teachers who are certified through the Hernando County School District. While at Pace, girls also meet with counselors who provide mental health services for the girls and their families. Girls are typically enrolled at Pace for between 18-21 months and upon exit, follow up services are provided for at least 1 year. The program is free of charge for girls who reside in Hernando County and meet eligibility requirements. For more information, please call to set up a tour!
At Pace Hernando, our passion is derived from our students. We currently serve girls who reside in Hernando County.
