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 history,
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.
