P.A.C.E. is an instructional program that integrates across all areas of students’ lives, preparing them for an adult world through functional academics and classroom instruction, employment preparation, life skills, socialization and community.
P.A.C.E. students generally have more ability and potential than their test scores indicate, and are highly motivated to be successful in life. They want to attend college, and their goal is to live in the world and contribute to society as independent adults.
P.A.C.E. students have experienced a range of learning difficulties, most often in the areas of language, mathematics, abstract reasoning, reading comprehension, as well as organizational and social difficulties. Student diagnoses include learning and intellectual disabilities, high- functioning autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, executive function disorder, speech and language impairments, and other similar disabilities that interfere with learning.
