Since the County of San Diego purchased the property in 2000, the buildings at San Pasqual Academy have undergone significant renovations to bring them up to health and safety standards, as well as to modernize their uses.  Renovations were made possible by both County funds and generous contributions from private donors.

One of the most unique features of San Pasqual Academy is the family-style homes.  Up to eight youth and their houseparents live in individual family homes.  The homes are spacious and offer a common living area, dining area, kitchen, laundry space, youth bedrooms and bathrooms, and a houseparent suite.  Two youth share a bedroom, which they are able to personalize to their taste, and an adjoining bathroom with two other youth.  Each youth has a computer in their room, and Internet access is available in the common living area.  The houseparents have personal space in an adjoining suite, which features a bedroom and bathroom, living room, dining area, and kitchen.
