College Matriculation

Pacifica is proud of the accomplishments of its graduates, and we are happy to assist students with their postsecondary plans. Our alums have attended a variety of colleges and universities, from small liberal arts colleges to large public universities, from California schools to the east coast, and even international schools. Our college preparatory liberal arts curriculum, combined with its mission of teaching students to think and live well has enabled students to think carefully and critically about the type of education they are seeking at the next level.
