AT ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY
STUDENTS COME FIRST

At IPA, each child is valued as an individual. Our students are at the center of a well-rounded education that allows all to be nurtured, all to develop, and all to shine. From the moment our students step on campus each morning to the end of a fulfilling day, all we do is with the belief that "students come first."

AT ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY
VALUES MATTER

IPA students are immersed in a school culture "WHERE VALUES MATTER." We practice core values – the power of human kindness, generosity of spirit, and recognition of each individual's value – which helps students develop strong character and become good citizens in their community and the world.

AT ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY
COMMUNITY COUNTS

IPA students thrive in a caring community made up of students, faculty & staff, parents, and families. At IPA learning extends beyond school walls and campus borders into the community. Students have much to learn from the community and also a responsibility to give back through service learning.

The Arts and Social-Emotional Health During the Pandemic

For many students, the anxiety, isolation, and social-emotional distress they faced over the past year has hit hard. Creating art provides opportunities for student expression and outlets for difficult feelings. It gives them a medium to reflect and make sense of what is happening. IPA students have had music, visual arts, and theatre – and the support of their teachers – to help them cope with the pandemic.
