Voices Gets A Makeover
A beautifully redesigned new issue of Pacific Oaks College & Children’s School’s magazine makes its Spring 2016 debut.
Voices, the magazine of Pacific Oaks College & Children’s School, made its Spring 2016 debut with a fresh new look.
Since 2012, the magazine has been bringing students, alumni, and friends in-depth feature stories and news about what’s happening in the Pacific Oaks community. After months of reader surveys and marketing research, Voices was redesigned in 2016 with enhancements to editorial offerings and layout.
The changes include a more vibrant color palette, and the addition of a section that highlights alumni outcomes. The flow of departments within the magazine was also tweaked and enhanced to keep readers more engaged and connected.
In honor of Pacific Oaks’ recent 70th anniversary celebration, the Spring 2016 cover story examines the institution’s long legacy of service in education. This new issue of Voices also includes a story about how Pacific Oaks’ roots in Quaker philosophy continue to influence curriculum and an in-depth feature about President Pat Breen.

The Invaluable Lessons of Service
For more than seven decades, Pacific Oaks College & Children’s School has fostered a culture of social justice through volunteerism and community service—extending its core values from the Pasadena community to as far away as villages in South Africa.
A Few Good Families
When Pacific Oaks Children’s School was founded 70 years ago, there was a need in the Pasadena community for a more progressive and inclusive approach to early childhood education. Quaker principles of social justice were woven into the school’s mission and continue to define the institution today.
Pacific Oaks College & Children’s School’s 10th president, Dr. Patricia A. Breen, reflects on growing up the daughter of a naval officer—experiences that took her around the globe and informed a world view ideal for her role at Pacific Oaks today.
