Hello PACP Students!

I'm thrilled to announce an incredible opportunity for those of you passionate about engineering—EV Go-Kart Program! This is an essential experience for you to gain hands-on skills and knowledge that will not only enhance your college applications but also contribute significantly to your personal and professional development.  

 

Not to mention, Go-Kart is a rare opportunity! Did you know that Pacific Academy is the first high school in Orange County to compete nationally with our very own solar car? This summer we collaborated with PA's solar car coach to provide students from other schools with this rare experience!
