About Our School

"One size fits all" doesn't work when it comes to education.  Pacific View Academy is an alternative school environment, independent from the classroom with flexible instructional methods for motivated learners. 

Pacific View Academy is for kindergarten through twelfth-grade students. Our program provides a comprehensive education to students with unique learning styles and talents. Classroom study does not work for every student and for some of those students, our Independent Study Program is a great fit.

Pacific View Academy is located in Arroyo Grande on the Mesa at 1065 Mesa View Drive. Students in Independent Study follow the district’s curriculum map and pacing. However, the Pacific View Academy staff provides a learning environment that adjusts to meet the individual educational goals and needs of each student. While in the program, students engage in a variety of projects that serve to make their learning experience enriching and meaningful.
