About Pan American Christian Academy (PACA)

Pan American Christian Academy (PACA) is a Christian, American and Brazilian curriculum school located in the city of São Paulo. We work with an average 345 students from different parts of the world with an American-style pre-school through high school education. Since 1960, we’ve served the local and international community of São Paulo.

All PACA students follow an American program of study, which has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (AdvancEd) since 1986. And we also offer an optional dual curriculum which is accredited by the Ministry of Education in Brazil. Our program allows students to receive two diplomas, American and Brazilian, upon graduation and opens doors for them to study in the best universities in the USA, Brazil or throughout the world. The curriculum is fully transferable, allowing students to move to another American school worldwide with minimum academic disruption.

PACA develops students with a healthy, well balanced life being taught how to make the right choices, take up life challenges, and contribute towards making an impact on society. Our Christian educators integrate Biblical truth in all areas of instruction to guide the hearts and minds of students. PACA’s unified, nurturing and comprehensive American-style educational approach enables students to develop their fullest potential, offering a supportive community environment to students and families.

In today’s economy, there is a need to prepare global citizens. Our students are taught to become life long learners in a diverse and global community. Among our 345 students, the school has a very international student body comprised of 30% Americans, 30% Brazilians, 25% Korean, and 15% other 11 nationalities (German, Indian, South African, Colombian, etc.). A PACA student understands, respects, and benefits from a multicultural experience, recognizing and respecting the qualities and rights of all people. And our American-style, college preparatory, bilingual curriculum (American and Brazilian) integrates Christian values to prepare our students to make a difference in the world.

The teachers are homophobic, have very strong views that they try to teach to young students. I absolutely hate it here.

Nunca estudei na PACA (Pan American Christian Academy), mas já a visitei algumas vezes em eventos e reuniões de recreação. O espaço é um recanto da cultura americana, frequentado marjoritariamente por americanos e seus descendentes diretos, ou por imigrantes de outros países, principalmente asiáticos. A grande maioria dos estudantes são filhos de americanos que estão no Brasil a trabalho. Eles ministram as aulas em inglês e usam o currículo americano do que é para nós o ensino fundamental e médio. O ambiente é amplo e bem arborizado. Eles possuem um grande campo de futebol e algumas quadras poliesportivas, além de outros espaços recreativos. As salas de aula parecem ser são boas e bem arejadas. Como disse, não estudei lá. Mas se tivesse, provavelmente seria uma boa experiência.
