All About PACE


PACE is the essence of authentic college preparation. Our mission is to ensure that our students will enter college with the foundations, skills, and mental habits to excel and succeed at the most competitive of post-secondary environments.  Our highly skilled and dedicated faculty members, who teach PACE students exclusively in our core classes, offer a wide variety of honors and Advanced Placement courses to a student population that is not only intellectually talented but also who has chosen a high school academic path of rigor and excellence.  PACE also offers three curricular pathways linked to the medical professions, economics and entrepreneurship, and technology and engineering to provide our students one-of-a-kind experiences both within and beyond the classroom.  PACE alumni will tell you that this approach has provided them with the skills necessary to achieve their educational and professional dreams.  It is not inappropriate to note that the only student in Long Beach ever to see the world from the top of Mt. Everest is a PACE graduate.
