Welcome to Pacem
Celebrating Curiosity - Igniting Passions
Pacem School is an intellectually inspiring, joyful learning community in Montpelier, VT. We are a state-approved, full-time independent 6th - 12th grade school, and in addition, we offer coursework and extra-curricular support to homeschoolers age 10-18. Our students are curious and passionate. We give them time and freedom to pursue their interests while supporting them with an intellectually rich curriculum. Our exceptional faculty, all experts in their fields, inspire and guide our students every day. Pacem provides a community where each student is known and cherished. This setting allows our students to develop confidence, feel empowered, and to blossom.
Join us in the January!
We accept students on a rolling space-available basis, and we are now enrolling for January classes. Admissions information is on our admissions information page. Course descriptions and the weekly schedule for next year are also available. Please contact us if you have any questions.
All of our classes are open to both homeschoolers and full-time students. This fall, however, we have a few short-term offerings that might be of particular interest to homeschoolers who are not able to commit to a year-long class. Explore our short-term offerings in art, French, and ancient history!
We will be continuing our community lunch program this year, and you are invited! All the information and a link to let us know you're coming is here. Lunches will feature soup from Joe's Kitchen at Screamin' Ridge Farm.
