Key ethos

  • We are diverse - over 28% of our students self-identified as mixed race; 40% AAPI; 14% white; 4% Black; 12% Latinx.
  • We are excellent, ambitious, innovative, AND joyful.
  • We are inclusive and faithfully grounded under a large banner of Christ-centered approaches, which serves as the basis for our moral and ethical reasoning. We also welcome and have many families with other faith traditions, and with no faith traditions.
  • We are ecumenical - our families are from many Christian traditions (mainline protestants, Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Anglicans, Evangelicals, etc). We educate all from the Christian foundation that likens the broad and essentials of Mere Christianity (C.S. Lewis).
  • We are well rounded with an emphasis on the outdoor (small animal center on campus, outdoor ed with surfing kayaking, archery, skateboarding, nature arts and photography, etc.).
  • We love and care for our families. Throughout the pandemic, 94% of our families were satisfied or very satisfied with our school’s response.

What people are saying about PacBay

PacBay's ability to help me through each step of school while teaching me ways to become a more self-reliant person helps me learn and grow.

-Kamiel '20

My daughter is in her first year at Pacific Bay and is thriving academically, spiritually, and socially... it is refreshing to see her so engaged... We love this school and community.

-PacBay parent

I’ve taught many subjects in four states, two countries, and all kinds of schools. I can say that PacBay is the kindest, healthiest, most supportive and spiritually mature school at which I’ve ever taught.

-PacBay teacher

This is a good place for me to reimagine who I am and who I want to be.

-Laurie '20

PacBay experiences, inside and outside the classroom, have already helped our daughter reimagine education, and are inspiring her to think of the world as her spiritual and educational community.

At this school you get out of your comfort zone and push the limits you think you may have.
