About Us

The Pacific School offers tuition free K-12 programs to students on the Sonoma and Mendocino Coast. The mission of the Pacific School is to provide a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum which prepares students to enter higher education and occupations in their communities with an understanding of their geographic and historical roots and the goals toward which they can grow as adults. 

The guiding principle of the School is that the best preparation for life includes an education that is challenging to all students and respectful of individuals: an environment of friendship, self-reliance, honesty, initiative, courage and creativity in which everyone belongs.
  • Family Participation: We believe that education happens best when students, parents and teachers participate in the learning process.
  • History: Learn more about the school's history.
  • Governance Council: Members of the GC are the trustees of the nonprofit organization that runs PCCS.
  • Student-Led Conferences: help build students' self esteem and develop communication skills.

The Pacific Community Charter School is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. PCCS is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
