Culture

Shared Life in Community

 

 

It’s all about culture

We are intentional about every aspect of our shared life together to form young men and women who can think critically and wisely about the world and their place in it and enjoy the journey of high school.

We live by these six cultural behaviors:

 

 

Ask Good Questions

Ask Good Questions

A sense of wonder about the world is foundational to knowing. Asking good questions is a hopeful and necessary part of a student’s quest for truth.

Learn From Others

Learn From Others

Even wise people cannot see all angles, and sometimes the insight that solves the trickiest questions comes from a surprising place. We help students see that learning is relational.

Fail Forward

Fail Forward

In great journeys, falling down is not the problem - turning back is. We embrace the possibility of failure as the risk of doing new and great things.

Assume the best

Assume the best

We tend to find what we seek; the shape of our beginnings impacts our possible outcomes. And so we begin with hope.

Pursue Balance

Pursue Balance

Living well requires knowing how to prioritize good things, making time for what is important and allowing leisure to inform our work.

Act with Conviction & Compassion

Act with Conviction & Compassion

Spiritual Life

Spiritual life

Beyond our academics, Pacifica encourages Christian faith and formation. Students are free to grow in faith, addressing their doubts and fears. We cultivate virtue through academics and co-curriculars, instilling daily habits and modeling them in relationship with mature adults.

Student Life

Student life

Relationships are central to a Pacifica education. Students learn the abundant and joyful life is marked by giving and receiving grace in community.

At Pacifica, we know each other well, and are known. In community we learn, grow in faith, attend games and art exhibits, and live life together. These experiences allow personal growth as students begin to share their virtue with the larger world.
