KO, An Atlanta Parent

Thank you so much for inviting our Pace Academy Admissions Team to the 2014 Black Parens Forum and Admissions Fair. 

We were delighted to speak with so many enthusiastic families about our school, and I personally enjoyed meeting you and listening to your panel discussion.  Having the opportunity to connect with prospective students and their parents in such an inspiring and informative atmosphere has been invaluable to us.  We appreciate your time and expertise and look ward to participating again next year!
