The Pacific Charter Institute is led by Executive Director Dr. Paul Keefer and our diverse board members with extensive careers as educators and educational thought leaders. The leadership of Dr. Paul Keefer and our board have shaped our policies and continue to work daily to achieve our mission.

I love that I get to spend more time with my kids, and they have the opportunity to freely explore their interests while receiving a great education.

,,Our Board has a strong record of educational leadership, stability, and fiscal responsibility. The outstanding academic success at the schools under Pacific Charter Institute, strong and stable management, unqualified audits, and healthy fiscal reserves are reflective of its leadership.
