Apart of the federally (US Department of Education) funded TRiO Educational Talent Search program, Project PACE , assists qualified first generation individuals (neither parent completed a bachelor’s degree) from disadvantaged backgrounds and supports and empowers them to successfully graduate from high school and pursue higher education.

The program serves Wekiva High School, Piedmont Lakes Middle School and Lockhart Middle School. The program will also provide services to adult learners (19-27) who have yet earned a secondary school diploma or a GED.
