Pacific Coast Academy


Boarding school

Pacific Coast Academy (often shortened to PCA) is the boarding school that all the main characters of the show attend, and is the main setting of Zoey 101. It's located somewhere in southern California. It was formerly an all-boys school, but at the beginning of Season 1, they started accepting girls into the school, making it coed.

It's a modern school, with brightly colored lounges, rooms, and many recreational activities. In the pilot episode, it's revealed that it has some of the best teachers in the country. Dean Rivers is the current head of PCA, and he's a former student at the school. It has five halls for students to live in with more than 100 rooms in each: Fulton Hall, Butler Hall, Dillard Hall, Brenner Hall and Maxwell Hall.

It also includes the Harry Schneider Building, which houses the economics room, chemistry room, history room, math room, the housing office, and the Dean's office. The campus also has a cafe, a movie theater, a Japanese restaurant, and a number of coffee carts.
