PACE Program
Program in American 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 graduates 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 English, history, math, science, and foreign language) and takes uniquely designed English and history courses with an emphasis on California history, government, and literature, with writing across the curriculum.
