Welcome to Pacific Buddhist Academy

Welcome to Pacific Buddhist Academy

Major Capital Campaign Milestone Reached!

We have big news to share! Thanks to a pledge of 250,000,000 yen (about 2 million dollars) from the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha and support from you and many temples, affiliate organizations and laypeople of the Hawaii Kyodan and other friends, Pacific Buddhist Academy has reached a major milestone in our journey toward a new school building! We look to break ground on our future site this spring. The new facility will enable the size of the student body to increase to at least 120 and will allow numerous education programs to expand.

Capital Campaign
