Principal's Message

Hello PCOA Families, 

We are pleased to offer our school as a consistent online program, so that you can be secure in knowing what to expect in the education for your children without worry of returning to a physical building at this time. Pacific Crest Online Academy is my third brand new school for which I have been principal, though this is my first online school. I am coming from Leona Libby Middle School, for which I had the great pleasure of working in a collaborative team to design the school and then open and lead for the past three years. 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.  

I am excited to serve as your principal at Pacific Crest Online Academy and to help design what PCOA will become in the future. We have formed a planning committee to design the next iteration of PCOA as we look toward next year and the future of our school. 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
