Arroyo Pacific Academy’s Foundation celebrated its 20th Anniversary Gala in their new building at 325 N. Santa Anita Avenue in Arcadia. With over 200 guests in attendance, alumni, parents, and friends of the school came together in support of the new campus and the annual Gala. The school moved only two weeks prior to the event, but guests were all smiles as the event raised over $35,000 for scholarships for deserving students.

The Mardi Gras Ball was an evening that celebrated the new school campus with an enthusiastic mood that was contagious. The jazz band played New Orleans themed music throughout the evening, the roving mime kept people entertained and the dinner was a New Orleans treat. There were raffle prizes, a silent auction, a live auction, and a Fund-A-Need that kept the loyal alums and friends bidding throughout the evening.

The new buildings are now joined with the Clarke Center as one cohesive campus. There is an academic building that houses classrooms and a computer lab. The main administrative building houses offices, classrooms, a computer lab and a dining hall. The Clarke Center has a Mac Lab, Art Studio, Dance Studio, Music Suite, TV & Film Production Studio, Fitness Center, and Theatre. The campus can accommodate up to 250 students and is currently accepting applications for summer school and the 2018-2019 academic year.
