          Mental Wellness

          Pace Academy is dedicated to supporting the whole child. Through our guidance counseling program, we strive to assist the young people in our care as they endeavor to become successful students and, ultimately, thriving citizens of the world. Students' social-emotional growth is a vital part of that journey.

          Counselors in our Lower, Middle and Upper Schools provide guidance and support to students, parents and faculty. The counselor’s role is not only to help members of the Pace community navigate difficult life situations when they arise, but also to provide education and tools on an ongoing basis so community members are better equipped to face these challenges.
