Working at Pacific Oaks College & Children's School


Grounded in its social justice heritage, Pacific Oaks College prepares students to be culturally intelligent agents of change serving diverse communities in the fields of human development, education, and related family studies.

Pacific Oaks College is a nonprofit, accredited higher education institution offering bachelor’s completion, master’s, and certificate programs in human development, counseling, education, early childhood education, and teacher credentialing. The school offers classes at its main campus in Pasadena and at a number of convenient instructional sites throughout California, as well as online.

Founded more than 60 years ago by a small group of Quaker families, Pacific Oaks College has remained dedicated to the fundamental Quaker principles of inclusion, social justice, and the valuing of every human being. Three basic concepts underlie the educational philosophy at Pacific Oaks:

  • that every individual has a fundamental worth;
  • that growth is a dynamic and life-long process;
  • and that every individual has a unique identity and human potential.

Pacific Oaks has a long history of serving non-traditional and adult students and has become known and recognized for its progressive approach to teaching and learning—valuing real-world experiences in addition to academic achievements. This philosophy is embodied in the school’s Experiential Learning, approach, and opportunities such as the Credit for Life Experience option which allows students to gain academic credit for real-world experiences.

Pacific Oaks is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and has been since 1959.
