Equipping tomorrow’s leaders

Thank you for committing to make a difference in the lives of our students and our community through a gift to Pacifica’s Annual Giving Plan 2016-2019.

Building an exceptional, innovative high school that integrates faith and learning to prepare the next generation of leaders to think and live well requires a significant investment. Pacifica’s Annual Fund helps bridge the gap between what tuition covers and the annual operation of our school. It has an immediate benefit for each and every student. The annual fund makes it possible to attract, retain and develop our outstanding faculty, continue to build out the school’s college preparatory academic program, fund Triton athletics and Pacifica Arts. It also helps us expand and maintain our growing campus. Together we are preparing every student with a foundation for success in college, life, work, and faith. Please join us, your gift matters!

The 2018-19 Annual Fund goal is $1,400,000 with 100% family, staff, and trustee participation. All students benefit from these transformative gifts, which will allow us to execute Pacifica’s Strategic Plan – Pacifica 2019, Fortis Fundamentum.
