Our People

Great people — all sharing a common purpose.

Committed, Christian leadership is what has set Pacific Academy apart since it was first founded. Indeed, Ray Sutton, who was Headmaster from 1986-2005 established that philosophy early on and it's still very much ascribed to today by Dennis Tjernagel, Head of School as well as the entire staff, Board and Leadership Team.

Because we believe that to raise the very best Christian leaders of tomorrow, students need to be stewarded by the very best Christian leaders of today. And we've been blessed to be able to draw such a talented, committed staff of individuals here to Pacific Academy.

OUR TEAM: SCHOOL WIDE STAFF

We believe so strongly in Pacific Academy and their mission statement that we have enrolled every one of our 10 children in the school.
