21st CentryAt Pace, we help students develop the 21st Century Skills necessary for their future success and independence. Our vision is that students gain knowledge and skills that will lead them to an independent, self-determined and productive life. Their future and independence includes the ability to make and maintain healthy relationships and to gain meaningful employment.
