Principal's Message

Hello Families, 

We welcome you to another exciting year of collaboration, as we foster a caring community of learners and educators in support of the individual learning goals of each and every one of your children. We are pleased to offer inclusive learning opportunities for students to thrive in their construction of knowledge and aquisition of skills. Pacific Crest Online Academy is my third brand new school for which I have been principal, though this is my first online school. Previously, I had the great pleasure of working in a collaborative team to design and lead Leona Libby Middle School. Prior to that, I worked with a team to design an innovative STEAM high school in Los Angeles and then served as the founding principal for the first four years of operation.  

Last year, as the founding principal of Pacific Crest Online Academy, I formed a planning committee consisting of parents, teachers, district administrators, and local professors to design the future of PCOA. That future begins this school year. Thank you for partnering with our teachers to support the success of your children. And thank you in advance for all the great work we will do together throughout this school year. 

In partnership, 

Andre Hargunani
