Pacific Learning Academy is a Washington State Approved Private School via the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI — see listings of all WA State approved schools in Excel format HERE or search via the OSPI directory HERE) and an Accredited private school via AdvancED/Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC), which has recently become Cognia ). High School coursework is approved by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
The mission of Pacific Learning Academy is to provide alternative, one-on-one education to students, empowering them with mastery of the subject matter by matching the student with highly professional, well-trained and caring adults experienced with the curriculum and alternate educational scenarios.
The Academy offers the following accredited middle and high school courses, as well as individually-designed and customized electives. All Sciences are considered Lab Sciences, and Foreign Language for other languages besides French and Spanish may be available (Japanese and ASL, for example).
