Starting in their Junior year, PACE High School students are eligible to take courses at Pace University. Tuition is free, and students may take almost any classes open to first year undergraduates (with the exception of lab sciences and professional programs). By the time a student graduates from PACE High School, he or she could have taken college classes for five semesters and acquired 15-20 college credits!
Students may choose almost any courses from the Pace University course catalogue (which you can explore here), but our students have been particularly drawn to and successful in the following:
- Criminal Justice
- Foreign Languages
Grades that students receive from their college courses are included on their high school transcripts and can, in some cases, take the place of required core courses offered here at the high school.
