Consistent with our mission to provide a solid college preparatory education in a diverse environment, we seek to admit students of varied talents, interests and abilities. In making admissions decisions, we consider the student’s entire academic and personal profile. Admission to PHS is competitive, but not exclusive. We look for candidates who demonstrate intellectual curiosity, a willingness to work hard, a strong desire to attend college, good character, and the ability to make a positive contribution to our community and benefit from our program. A student who demonstrates academic promise but whose grades and test scores do not reflect his or her true abilities may be accepted if there is evidence of a desire to perform to potential.
To apply, students must submit a completed application and fee, transcripts, an administrator and two teacher recommendations, and standardized test scores. Candidates must also meet with the Admissions Director and are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
Pacific Hills School, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) independent secondary school, admits students of any race, color, creed, religion, gender, family orientation, national and ethnic origin, and does not discriminate in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid, or other school-administered programs.
