Academics at PAA

Developing future-ready students.


Knowing the right answers is important if a student wants to pass a test, get into college, and improve their career prospects. But the ability to recall information isn’t enough to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s challenges.

At PAA, we are committed to equipping high schoolers with the knowledge, character, and skills they need to greet the future with confidence. We believe God has gifted each student with unique skills and passions. Our academic program is designed to uncover, nurture, and inspire lifelong development of those gifts.

Rigorous Academics

We believe students shouldn’t have to sacrifice strong academics to attend a faith-based school.

At PAA, high schoolers are taught curriculum on the level of a college preparatory program, and our core courses are University of California (UC a-g) approved.

In addition to our core courses, we offer advanced courses in Biology, college prep Physics, and Pre-Calculus.
