Academic Advising

At Pacifica students are known, not anonymous.

The Academic Departments strive to meet each student’s unique academic needs. We support each student where they are, helping each one improve, whether that be making the jump from a ‘C’ to a ‘B’ or learning what it takes to produce high quality work and change a ‘B’ to an ‘A’.

Advisory Program

Every student is assigned an advisory class in which they have a block of time to complete school work, meet with available teachers, or get help from their peers. This built-in study time instills effective time management skills, assisting them to learn how to use their time wisely.

Four Year Planning

With our administrative team’s help, every student creates a personalized four-year plan during their freshmen year. We then revisit their plan  on a yearly basis, ensuring that our students are continuing to reach their goals. We help guide students in the selection of their courses, balancing extra-curricular activities, highlighting possible internships, Summer programs and volunteer opportunities as well as identifying strengths all in line with personal goals and college interest.

Teacher Office Hours

Pacifica teachers are accessible. Each week, our teachers devote their time to set office hours. Students can take advantage of meeting with any of their teachers one-on-one on a weekly basis.

Office of Academic Affairs


As the Principal, it is my pleasure to work with our administration and faculty to guide each family towards achieving the goals of a Pacifica education-development of the whole person. My mission is to help students meet personal goals, whether they are academic, social, or personal. With the guidance of the Academic Departments, students receive the needed support to foster their unique talent, discover true passion, and grow in an array of subjects and activities.
