Profile of a PNA Graduate
"My PNA 'take away' is: Be independent, but don't be afraid to ask for help or offer help to others." Christina Young, Class of 2007
Watch a group of Pacific Northern Academy Graduates, and a compelling composite emerges. It's the picture of a person prepared to function productively on all levels: intellectual, emotional, social, physical. A person ready to participate fully in the world; a willing and able contributor; a self-motivated lifelong learner.
