Application Procedure

  1. Students, with Parent / Guardian permission, can apply to Pacific Coast School.   Students may also be recommended by other schools, district administration, or other agencies.
  2. The application form needs to be filled out completely to ensure that the applicant’s needs are apparent.  The applicant should indicate whether they are interested in taking only one or two courses(part time), have graduated and need to upgrade, or are interested in full time studies at Pacific Coast School.  (No commitment will be made to student, parent or guardian at this point)
  3. The Picture Consent Release Form will also need to be filled in and handed in with the application. This is important to promote school spirit, personal achievments and school activities.
  4. When appropriate, an intake meeting will take place with the teaching team and the student to determine what their learning needs are. Parents are encouraged to attend these meetings as well.  The student is introduced to the Code of Conduct and asked if they agree to take responsibility to attend under the expectations of the code.  If the student agrees, then the team, along with the student and parent/guardians will design a Personal Education Plan that is specific to the student.
  5. Parents and guardians will also need to read, sign and submit the High Risk Waiver Form which enables the student to participate in TREC² events.


The forms below come in both “Fillable” and “non-Fillable” versions. The fillable ones you can fill out on the computer, print and sign. Please use Adobe Acrobat Reader to fill out on the computer. The non-fillable ones you need to print and fill out with a pen.
