Independent schools are funded by tuition, annual giving, an endowment (if they have one), and they can be awarded grants. Pacific Northern Academy also has a yearly Auction Gala.
In a 21st Century school it is of utmost importance that children are engaged in the learning process. At Pacific Northern Academy students literally run through the school doors to get to class each morning. With a balanced vision of academic excellence and character enrichment, PNA offers a rich program that encourages exceptional learning and independent thinking.
In creating the school's long range plans, the Board of Directors, Administration, and Faculty are committed to the following three principles:
- We will always be committed to Academic Excellence.
- We will prepare students by providing them with the tools they need to be lifelong learners of vision, courage, and integrity.
- We will instill compassion, respect, and an understanding of civic responsibility and community service.
“As parents, the responsibility we face which has the most lasting impact on our children is deciding how best to provide for their education.” - Jeffery C. Woodworth, PNA’s First Head of School
Any gift, no matter how big or how how small, has a lasting impact on school and community.
