- PacBay's educational approach is captured by three words: play, passion, and purpose. Our innovative outdoor education program illustrates this approach by engaging all students in surfing, hiking, biking, and urban farming. This program aims to expand students' minds, strengthen their bodies, and deepen their understanding of how they relate and connect to their environment, to one another, and ultimately, to their Creator.
- As an academically rigorous, college preparatory school, all high school courses are UC-certified. We offer 14 AP classes and an ever-expanding list of electives. The senior thesis project, Senior Seminar: Justice is the capstone to a PacBay education and important preparation for college. Our graduates are accepted to some of the top colleges and universities around the country, and are represented across all the Universities of California campuses.
- Our 37-acre coastside campus is easily accessible from San Francisco and San Mateo county. Students come from 17 Bay area communities to attend. Transportation is available.
