What is AP PACE?
AP PACE offers a comprehensive AP family involvement component. The purpose of AP PACE is to build a community of families, school staff, and students who will serve as a network of support within their school communities. The core idea is to leverage existing assets and skills of families while building their capacity and knowledge in regards to:
- the benefits of AP courses,
- what it means for students to be college and career ready,
- and the importance of family involvement.
AP PACE aims to further stakeholders; involvement in student achievement by supporting the college-ready culture of schools among families and students. Together as empowered communities, we can further connect AP, college majors, and careers thereby opening a world of ideas and inspiration for our students.

Provided below is a sample template for a catalogue your school can use (or revise to fit your school’s style) to share with students and families of the supports made available to them.
