BUILDING THE FOUNDATION FOR YOUR CHILD’S FUTURE

“At P.A.C.E. we strive to provide your child with a high-powered learning program that aims to challenge them, motivate them and unleash their true potential.”

The Academy for Gifted Children – P.A.C.E. (Programming for Academic and Creative Excellence) is a non-denominational, co-educational private day school devoted entirely to meeting the needs of identified intellectually gifted students in grades 1-12.

Our fully accredited program provides a differentiated curriculum built on greater depth and breadth of instruction using methodologies specific to gifted education. The primary goal at P.A.C.E. is to find and enhance the abilities of our students, while simultaneously addressing their social and emotional needs.

P.A.C.E. is based on the premise that gifted children need high-powered learning experiences to challenge their minds and ensure intellectual growth and achievement. Alongside our academic disciplines, P.A.C.E. students excel through their experiences with dynamic field studies, a competitive fine arts program and a comprehensive athletic program.

Beyond our tailored curriculum, our students engage in a plethora of national and international competitions. These opportunities serve as catalysts to the pursuit and achievement of our students’ future goals and successes.  P.A.C.E. has ranked nationally in math, science and Robotics as well as both creative and expository writing competitions.
