Welcome Back!

A message from your director:

PACS staff is excited to start a shiny, brand-new 2021-22 school year with you!

Last year really showcased the talents, flexibility and determination of the PACS staff and the resiliency, grit, and fortitude of the PACS students.

The pandemic has, and continues, to highlight what is important in the education of our youth for success in today's landscape. This message is not anything new for us at PACS! The reason our PACS family, and when I say PACS family I mean to include: parents/guardians and their students, staff, board members, and community partners; is so strong is because of the commitment you all have in the message of charter schools: We demand something different, because our families deserve something different.

The freedom of being a part of PACS, creates the ability of PACS to respond and adapt to what our school community needs. We are proud to have you all stand together with us again to continue to provide thoughtful, innovative, and creative learning opportunities for your students!

We will continue to update you on any news of our learning plan affected by COVID-19, and invite you to find news, information and events relating to this on our new COVID-19 tab on the top of our webpage.

Enjoy the rest of the summer, and looking forward to seeing you all again soon!

Executive Director


School Supply List 2021-2022

We ask that students bring any items for the general supplies, or a monetary donation for the school to purchase bulk items.

What do you think?

Vision: Our students will become success-oriented, contributing citizens, who are stewards of the environment and life long learners.

Mission: Pillager Area Charter School will educate by building relationships with students, families, and community, and provide opportunities to develop career readiness skills through experiential approaches to curriculum and instruction.

Pillager Area Charter School is an experiential high school serving grades 9-12. We take students on field experiences weekly to learn about industries and companies in our state, while allowing students to learn about local career opportunities. Go to Adventures to find out more! Many of the descriptions are written by our current and former students.
