Pilgrim Area Collaborative (PAC)

The Pilgrim Area Collaborative 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 25 educational collaboratives in Massachusetts and provides programs and services to students & families from over 50 communities from the South Shore & Cape Cod. Children are referred to PAC by their local school districts.

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. Students who need more intensive services are educated in our Pilgrim Academy school in Plymouth.
