At Pacific Academy we treat Encinitas like our educational playground. We believe that an essential part of learning happens outside of the classroom; a time for students to truly become engaged in their lessons.
Students complete "field work" in science to understand and classify plants and animals. In history class students explore museums and create trenches in the sand to better understand World War One trench warfare. In English, students immerse themselves in the outdoors to understand the perspective of famous authors and poets who found their inspiration in nature. They visit local libraries and bookstores to do research on known and unknown authors and discover new and interesting texts. Electives also bring students onto the beautiful beaches where they learn to surf, play lacrosse, practice yoga, snorkel in Oceanography class, and run on the beach!
