At Health Professions High School, we prepare students for
college and careers. So we give students more hands-on
experience, more interaction with local healthcare employers,
more chances to earn college credit and more chances to
test-drive your career – all while still in high school.
Program in American and California Exploration (PACE)
WHAT IS PACE?
Program in America and California Explorations (PACE) is a
small learning community at John F. Kennedy High School.
PACE offers students a four-year advanced academic program.
The goal is to ensure that all PACE students are prepared to
attend and succeed at competitive four-year colleges and
universities. Each PACE student takes a rigorous
college-prep curriculum (including Advanced Placement and
honors classes in English, history, science, math, and
foreign language) and uniquely designed
English and history courses with an emphasis on California
government, and literature, emphasizing writing across the
curriculum. The first item college and university admissions
counselors look at is a student’s GPA in conjunction with the
rigor and challenge of his or her course schedule.
