An Interfaith High School in Pasadena, California


Announcement Effective April 14, 2015

When the Peace & Justice Academy was conceived back in 2008 it was an experiment in hope. Since opening our doors in September, 2009, the experiment has been, in our estimation, an enormous success – a success in every way except one. We have not been successful in enrolling students to the school. Based on our projected enrollment of returning students and new students who have made a commitment, we will not have the revenue necessary to further sustain the school.

At this time the board of directors has decided to cease operations for the school at the end of May, 2015.



Welcome to the Peace & Justice Academy

The Peace & Justice Academy is a fully-accredited, college preparatory high school unlike any other on earth…yet. In this safe space, students come together to learn without the need to separate themselves from their faith traditions or spirituality. We meet in the intersection of all of the world’s great religions, in the common ethic of love, compassion, justice, and peace.

We offer life lessons in service and social justice to complement a challenging academic scope and sequence designed to get students accepted to the college or university of their choice. Peacemaking can be a full-time vocation, and we would be proud to launch the next Gandhi or King into adulthood. But doing the right thing, treating others fairly, standing against injustice, and making the world a better place – these are the core elements of all successful careers. We teach these skills.

We really are doing something different here in Pasadena. Please spend some time on our website and, of course, you are always welcome to call or email us for more information.

Peace be with you.
