Since 1906, Pace University has provided high-quality education with a firm base in liberal arts learning. It is a private university with two campuses – in New York City and Westchester County – and has an enrollment of almost 13,000 students.
Pace University’s campus in Lower Manhattan is an intellectual and cultural hub on the border of Tribeca and the Financial District, between South Street Seaport, Wall Street, and Broadway. With this ideal location, Pace University is the perfect setting for a pre-college program.
During our 53 years of operation, we have provided incredible summer experiences for hundreds of high school students. Summer Discovery students come from 44 states and over 70 countries. This summer, join us and create long-lasting friendships with students from all over the world.
Campus life at Pace University is unique, but here is a preview of what you can do on a single day here.
You must arrive and depart on the specified arrival and departure days only. If this is not possible, you must arrive the day after arrival day or depart the day before departure day. There are no rooms available at our residence hall outside of the dates of the program.
Our travel agency, Musiker Travel, makes all flight arrangements for students from North America at your request. If you live outside of North America, you will receive instructions for making your own flight arrangements. Students being driven to campus will receive directions in the spring.
Summer Discovery provides escorted transfers from/to New York’s Kennedy Airport (JFK) or LaGuardia Airport (LGA) for $75 each way. We meet you at baggage claim or outside customs for international flights, and assist with your departure.
