CEO Message


I am very proud to share with you that Pacific Academy is recently ranked by Niche as the Top 3 best K-12 private school and Top 8 private high school in their "2021 Best Private Schools in OC" annual report. Pacific Academy is also ranked 35 among all private schools in California.

Pacific Academy Irvine campus was established in 2011 with only 18 students, majority of whom were international students. In the past 10 years, thanks to our dedicated and passionate faculty, supportive parents and hardworking students, Pacific Academy has grown and completely transformed into a unique school that provides students the opportunity to develop their talents while building a strong academic foundation. We have been maintaining 100% college acceptance and 80-90% UC acceptance, and have 1-3 students get into the Top 10 colleges every year. The outstanding achievements of the students at Pacific Academy have gradually assisted in building our exceptional reputation in the community, now putting us on the same level with many prestigious private schools.

We started our Chinese Immersion K-6 program in 2019 with 8 students. Now, we have almost 40 students and many on the waitlist. Currently ranked No. 3 in OC, we have confidence our K-6 program will continue to excel.

We welcome you to visit Pacific Academy to experience the family-like environment and learn about how we support our students to develop their talents and achieve academic excellence!




Ms. Kelly Chu
CEO, Pacific Academy
