Quality education is the single most important factor in a child’s potential for lifelong success. But access to quality education, especially for low-income youth, is directly impacted by generational poverty, failing public schools, gangs and crime, and racial disparities that negatively affect families. All children and families have value and deserve the opportunity to engage in quality educational experiences. We know that parents simply want what is best for their children. To get the best education possible and positively influence their children’s potential for future success, families need choices they can afford. In just 12 years,
PACE has awarded more than 7500 elementary and high school scholarships worth more than $11.5 million. Since 2006,
PACE has awarded 387 college scholarships valued at $1.2 million. All scholarship funds are generously supported by private donations and grants.
PACE is driven by parents who are motivated by their children’s success. Our Parents Network Program, started in 2001, provides information on school options to families and helps parent become effective primary educators of their children through seminars, outreach, tutoring assistance, family education programs, and peer support. Our Parents Network Program is rooted in the belief that parents must be the voices, advocates, cheerleaders, and role models for quality education.
PACE works hand-in-hand with parents to help them and their children navigate the maze of educational choices, jargon, and opportunities. We offer answers, advice, and moral support resulting in parents who are engaged and empowered.
PACE is committed to the long-haul in education: we want every child to start and finish strong, prepared to successfully respond to life’s many challenges. So whether we are helping parents find the elementary school that is the “best fit” for their child, assisting a high school student with the ACT, or guiding families through college preparation, students and families know they can count on
PACE for competent, reliable information and support.
PACE develops and sustains partnerships with families to help them provide quality educational opportunities for their children.
A group of local community leaders and businessmen collectively pooled their resources to improve education choices for low income families in the Dayton Community. Their goal was to make a difference in the community they lived by giving children who were less fortunate the opportunity to have a quality education of their own.
PACE began in 1998 by awarding scholarships to children in grades K-12 in Montgomery County whose families demonstrated financial need. The goal was to give families the opportunity to choose a school they wanted their child to attend.
In addition to the scholarship program, PACE established Parents Network. This program was designed to provide information for parents to assist them with their child's education. The program helps parents answer questions for parents on how to choose the best school for their child as well as how to work closely with the schools teachers and administrators.
Parents Network conducts seminars as well as provides brochures and information sheets for parents.
