What is Pace School?
Students with behavioral challenges and Autism are being left behind educationally and left out socially. At Pace, we scaffold supports and build positive relationships with students and their families in order to achieve success. By blending both academic and behavioral services into their learning environment students can achieve maximum benefits including:
- Improvements in academic, school/life-management skills
- Return to public school, ready to learn
- Diversion from psychiatric or in-patient hospitalizations
Our model integrates the following evidence based principles for a dynamic child focused approach:
- Behavior management
- Mental health
- Social and emotional development
How do we meet the child’s needs?

Many students at Pace often have one or more co-occurring mental health diagnosis. Pace supports students by providing the necessary services to address these complex needs through assistance with obtaining outpatient care or enrollment in the Pace Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). The PHP program, licensed by the Department of Human Services, provides intensive psychiatric services to children and families.
