VISION: Pace Brantley Preparatory School values the worth and dignity of every individual with learning disabilities as we prepare our students for success. Pace Brantley Preparatory sits on nine acres of picturesque wooded land. Over the past 50 years it has grown from one small building to seven buildings, basketball courts, Leadership Park, baseball and soccer fields. It truly is amazing how one dream can make such an impact of the lives of so many students. Mrs. Mary E. Dunn`s legacy will forever live on in the faces of so many students for years to come. Our Philosophy...Pace Brantley Preparatory believes that learning disabilities should carry no stigma: That if children are treated with dignity and respect they will feel positive about themselves;
That once they feel positive about themselves they will find that they can be more successful;
That with individual help and freedom from pressure, children can learn;
That some children with learning disabilities can return to the traditional classroom;
That some children whose problems are more complex may need special help indefinitely, but all can learn.
