Board of Trustees


The 6-member Board of Trustees is the school’s legal governing body. They exist to uphold the Pacifica mission, support the Head of School in the implementation of the mission, exercise fiduciary oversight, and approve school policy. The Board of Trustees is responsible for shaping the direction of the school. The leadership provided by the trustees is greatly valued.

We founded Pacifica Christian High School—Orange County to teach students to think and live well. We passionately believe that our community needs young citizens and neighbors who know how to think wisely and well. But we also need people who live virtuous lives — lives of humility and grace, faith and kindness, truth and justice. Pacifica—Orange County, as with our sister campus, will vigorously pursue these goals with our students. Pacifica is now in its tenth year. In that time we’ve learned that our vision is unlike other schools. We are happy to report that the Pacifica experience has produced great results—great people—throughout its history. We invite you to join in this next chapter at Pacifica: Pacifica—Orange County.
