Pace Academy on Monday officially opens the Arthur M. Blank Family Upper School on its campus on West Paces Ferry Road.
School officials say the 75,000-square-foot facility nearly doubles the space of the previous upper school facility. They say it will also add a college counseling suite, an academic resource center with private tutoring rooms and science labs.
A two-year fundraising campaign raised more than $35 million through 1,300 gifts from individual donors, including the lead gift from Arthur Blank, chairman of The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation.
