Vision & Goals of PAA


Pacific American Academy (Pa'a) is one of the first schools on the mainland to promote culture based education, as well as conventional learning methods. Our academic program starts from kindergarten to third grade, and hopes to eventually expand to sixteenth grade as approved by our charter. The educational program will be further developed to include vocational training and life skills for students to be productive citizens of their respective communities.


The students will:

Be inspired to attain knowledge and become life-long learners

Learn a variety of life skills to become competent and self-motivated learners

Participate in cultural learning through indigenous language, storytelling, music, dance, and art.

Develop critical thinking and problem solving skills to utilize within the academic curriculum and in everyday life situations.

  1. Greetings. Which Pacific Islander communities are you specifically targeting? Will there be Tongan/Samoan/Hawaiian/Chamorro language courses?
