Pilgrim Area Collaborative - PAC
The Pilgrim Area Collaborative (PAC) was established in 1976 to provide individualized educational services to children, ages 3-22, with significant learning challenges whose needs for support could not be met within their home school districts. PAC is one of 30 educational collaboratives in Massachusetts and provides programs and services to students & families from 32 communities from the South Shore & Cape Cod. Children are referred to PAC by their local school districts.Learn More »
PAC students are educated primarily in substantially separate classrooms located in age-appropriate public schools within member school districts. PAC students are provided opportunities to be included within typical education classes and activities as appropriate, and to be active participants in the school community, as well as the local municipality.
PAC also extends its services to home and community through its Pilgrim Area Collaborative Extended Services (PACES) program, through home consulting and training for parents and students, consulting to professional staff in school districts and offering professional development to districts. In addition, PAC runs extended day and extended year (summer) programs.
