Virtual Information Meetings and Interest Lists for Fall 2023 TK-5th Grade Enrollment Happening Now.

In a win for school choice, the Folsom Cordova Unified School District (FCUSD) School Board approved New Pacific School – Rancho Cordova charter school on Sept. 8. Local parents spoke in support of New Pacific School during the hearing and emailed board members directly to convey their desire for an additional option for families living in Rancho Cordova.

New Pacific School is a small school, open to all students, that builds connectedness between students, family, and school with the unique option of a hands-on and project-based curriculum where the teachers serve as a guide and encourage a collaborative student-centered environment. The school will add middle school in 2024, and high school soon after that.

New Pacific School is a part of Pacific Charter Institute (PCI), a non-profit organization that was established by educators in Sacramento in 2005. PCI’s has deep experience serving students and families in Northern California, including New Pacific School – Roseville, which opened this fall. With the FCUSD School Board’s green light, New Pacific School members begin enrolling students at the Rancho Cordova site this coming school year.
