School Programs

Pacesetters can bring a new level of excitement and engagement to your students’ school experience through our unique educational approach.  Currently, Pacesetters partners with schools in the region to support Physical Education, STEM, and outdoor education initiatives.  These partnerships have supplemented the schools' curriculum and capabilities, while not requiring them to hire, train, and develop capacity for an in-house experiential and outdoor education program.  If your students could benefit from an educational and adventurous field trip (see our Adventures page for options), an outdoor skills primer, an environmental education lesson that brings the science curriculum to life, or a teambuilding session that helps them work better together, our educators are prepared to facilitate a valuable experience that will certainly enhance the school day, week, or year.  We are open to fulfilling your school’s needs - whether that means one-time field trips or long-term, regular sessions with your students.
