The P.A.C.E. program has been designed specifically for students who need an opportunity to earn a high school proficiency diploma for jobs that require proof of high school proficiency, or, students who desire an opportunity to obtain a high school proficiency diploma for self-improvement and/or personal satisfaction. The P.A.C.E. online program (only 18 courses) is an accelerated program that provides students with an opportunity to graduate in a shorter period of time compared to an attendance-based program and is not a college-bound or college preparatory program. In order to meet the admissions requirements of a college in regards to applying as a high school diploma graduate, you must demonstrate on your official high school transcript that you have successfully completed “individual courses”. These “individual courses” are approximately 28 courses that are usually completed in 4 YEARS. Also, depending on the state that you live in, you may be required to take and pass a public high school state exit exam in order to be able to receive a public high school diploma. Please be advised that if you are planning to apply to a college, the college may require more than a high school diploma; you may be required to have a sufficient exam score on a standardized test such as the SAT test and/or a sufficient exam score on a national college admissions examination such as the ACT. Additionally, the college may require college preparatory English courses, advanced Math courses such as Trigonometry and Calculus, advanced Science courses such as Physics and Chemistry, Foreign Language courses such as French and Italian, and other admissions requirements. You should check with any potential college as to its specific admissions requirements.

There are no classes to attend. You will have access to your online program 24 hours a day / 7 days a week and can study from anywhere that you have internet access.
