Arroyo Pacific Academy is a four-year private, independent, coeducational, college preparatory high school located in Arcadia, California. It is a learning institution where academic attainment has the highest priority within a learning environment that is supportive and encouraging. Gifted middle school students enrolled at a local school, online school, or who are home-schooled, may apply to take advantage of the Academy’s individual courses, including AP courses. Generally this opportunity is granted only to students whose parents have met with a counselor familiar with gifted student needs, and who have support from their parents and current school. The Academy recognizes the needs of those advanced students who are ready for a greater challenge than the standard grade level content may offer.
