For the past 25 years, Pacific Northern Academy has provided the learning atmosphere that sparks a passion–the passion that becomes a lifelong career. With your support, we have graduated engineers, financiers, doctors, teachers, scientists, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, Peace Corp volunteers, cinematographers, and writers. No matter the career path, graduates have used the skills learned at PNA to achieve their dreams.

The family of a new 8th grader this year shows their support by donating to the Annual Fund!

Soon all the fireworks will be going off!

We had the rare opportunity to watch as Morgan’s eyes lit up when building a bridge of toothpicks, a passion ignited that would later lead Morgan to pursue an engineering degree. We never know what will create that spark that will develop into a passion. YOU ensure PNA’s quality education will remain accessible and doors will remain open every year.

Even during the current pandemic, PNA is open and students are creatively working within new boundaries to continue beloved traditions such as the 2nd Grade Egg Drop, while inventing new ways to play recess games using pool noodles to create 6 ft social distance! YOU ensure PNA students are able to walk their own path.

Now is better than ever to IGNITE YOUR SPARK. By donating before December 1st, you can help us meet our goal of $125,000. We appreciate your ongoing commitment to the school today, as well as to the next 25 years of graduates whose PNA experience will inspire them to make a difference in a complex and changing world.

Thank you for your generous support!
