Learning Journey

Preparation For Life

In Senior School, your child takes the next steps to prepare for life beyond school. Students embrace greater responsibility for their learning journey, develop their capacity to serve Christ and others, and continue to mature and develop good character.


Active Engagement

Students are actively engaged in the learning process and critical thinking as a skill for life. To assist students in their journey of preparing for life after graduation, we are able to assist students in the higher grades by seeking out work experience opportunities.

Broad Opportunities

We believe every child is unique, full of potential and capable of fulfilling their God-shaped purpose. In Senior School, we help students prepare for their future by introducing a variety of additional learning opportunities including collaborative learning, leadership skills, academic competitions, performing arts, camps, sporting events and additional extra-curricular activities.

Serving Our Community

Service is integral to Pacific Hills, enacting Christian values and growing personally. Student leadership, supporting school events, community assistance, visiting the aged, Mission trips - these are just a few areas of service opportunities we offer our students.
