Mission & Philosophy

“We educate students to be exceptional learners and independent thinkers of vision, courage, and integrity."

-Pacific Northern Academy Mission Statement

We expect students to be active participants in their own education, to continually challenge themselves, and to communicate clearly and respectfully. From Early Childhood through 8th grade, students learn to utilize good judgment, to treat others with compassion, and to act with vision, courage, and integrity as they develop intellectually and personally. Students, teachers and parents at PNA work in partnership to create a community of learners dedicated to education.

We embrace a student-centered approach to learning and we are committed to maintaining low teacher to student ratios that enable students to have meaningful and personalized interactions with their teachers.

Our intellectually engaging program includes studio arts, performing arts, foreign language, and physical education for students in Early Childhood through Eighth Grade. As we teach students to become critical thinkers, we also teach them to become leaders and active citizens of the 21st Century.
