Pacific school was established in October, 1994 as Pacific Comprehensive College, a co-educational Day and Boarding High School. Founded as an independent School, it initially catered for the needs of primary school leavers whose parents were desirous of hard core academics. The initial emphasis was on Science and Mathematics but later incorporated all arts and social science into its curriculum.
The College was approved by the Lagos State Government and accredited by the West African Examinations Council WAEC in 1998. It later gained accreditation of the National Examinations Council NECO in 2001. Our strength lies in our emphasis on mastery of academic subjects and we pride ourselves in getting our students prepared for college and for success in the wider world of work.
Our University /College Admission rate is about 85% while 15% of our students go for professional training and vocational careers. Some 10% of our College bound students get admitted into U.S universities.
In October 2007 the Pre-school and Primary School was established in response to the demand of the High School parents and the requirement of the Nigerian 6-3-3-4 system of Education. The Sixth Form programme came on board in 2010.
The Sixth Form prepares students for the Cambridge Advanced Level Programme, A/L, the Scholastic Aptitude Test, SAT and the Test of English as a Foreign Language, TOEFL in addition UTME and Post UTME is a part of the Sixth Form Programme. The objective of the Sixth Form Programme is to get student ready for College in choice courses. This Programme has been a huge success. Our success rate at the SSCE Level is 100%.
In September 2012, the Akure Campus was established and named Pacific Academy. It was to provide an additional choice in World class education in Ondo State, Nigeria.
Pacific Academy was approved by the Ondo State Government in January 2013. The Academy has also been accredited by WAEC and NECO for SSCE. The Sixth Form is also part of the Akure Campus Programme.
Today all three schools operate under one umbrella as Pacific Schools in two campuses, Lagos and Akure. The Lagos Campus houses Pacific Comprehensive College as well as the Pre-school and Primary admitting students from age 2 to 18. The Lagos Campus is situated in Shasha, Akowonjo in Lagos State.
