Our Teaching Philosophy

We’re Not Just a Choir Program.

Pacific Boychoir Academy (PBA) is a GRAMMY Award-winning school for 3rd-8th grade boys.  PBA has pursued a mission to nurture young scholars and artists since 2004.  Inspired by the desire to encourage students to develop into curious, creative, and empathetic young men, PBA’s educational approach follows a rigorous, individualized, and immersive academic curriculum and musical program for boys.  Many programs claim to prepare boys for the real world. We take them there!  Music is the vehicle which allows our choristers to be ambassadors and prepares them to be global citizens.

What Makes Pacific Boychoir Academy So Special?

A Comprehensive

Boys study English Language Arts, History, Science, Mathematics, Art, Spanish, Physical Education and more – in addition to two hours of daily musical study. Learn more about our curriculum here.


Music paired with academics invokes boys’ right-brain capabilities for language processing, sensory awareness, mood, memory and moral reasoning.

“Best for Boys”
Active Learning

Immersive education suits the strengths and needs of boys – with opportunities for hands-on learning, peer collaboration, and out-of-classroom learning.  The Best for Boys learning approach harnesses our students’ energy into life-long learning.

Small Class

We have a teacher-student ratio of 1:4 and classes are capped at 12 students.  Our instructors can account for varied learning styles, individualize lessons, and provide boys one-on-one attention.  Faculty members offer boys the encouragement, social-emotional skills, and inspiration they need.

Strong High School

Boys graduate from PBA well-prepared to enter public and independent high schools in the Bay Area and beyond.  Students explore and navigate their options during their high school search with support from our high school placement advisors.  Faculty supports along the way and prepares students well for life after PBA.

Incredible Performance

As day school boys pursue academics seriously, they mature personally. Through our integrated performing arts and academic program, boys reach significant milestones together through the unique opportunities we provide.
