Pacific Coast High School Online Summer Applications Update

The La Quinta High School Guidance Office is currently not accepting Pacific Coast High School online summer applications at this time. This is due in part to our remote learning situation and signatures and paperwork needed to process these applications.

Pacific Coast High School is currently working on a new online application that would make processing the summer online applications more efficient.

Students that submitted their PCHS hard copy application before we left school please know that you will need to re-submit when the new online application becomes available. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

More information on this new application procedure will be available soon. Remember to visit your Google Classroom and Parent Square daily for important up to date school information.
