MISSION STATEMENT: The Pasadena Area Independent Schools consortium is an alliance of sixteen schools, all members of the National Association of Independent Schools and accredited by the California Association of Independent Schools and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The mission of the Pasadena Area Independent Schools consortium is to increase community awareness and understanding of the value of independent school education, to encourage collaboration and cooperation among member schools as a means of better serving the community, and to provide professional growth opportunities for area admissions professionals. Welcome to the Pasadena Area Schools website! This site is intended as a community resource for those families wishing to explore educational options for their children, and is compiled through the cooperation of several schools in the Pasadena area.
Many of these schools participate in combined school fairs, or options nights, to allow parents to obtain information in a convenient setting. For more information on these events, please visit the “Community Events” section of our website. While many area schools share common procedures or tests for admissions, parents should contact schools directly for specific questions.
This website is maintained as a resource for the community by the Pasadena Area Independent Schools.
Schools wishing to update their information should contact the webmaster.
