The core of our programmatic vision is the collection of student learning provided in our academics, arts, athletics, outdoor trips & travel and service experiences within a supportive diverse and inclusive community.
Seattle Academy’s mission of preparing students for college and life means our academics pair traditional areas of study with innovative curriculum, projects, and performances.
Since Seattle Academy was founded, the arts have played a central role in our school’s identity. We believe that every student is intrinsically creative.
Seattle Academy Athletics offers an inclusive, no-cut program that invites students of all skill levels to participate in our team sports offerings. At the same time, we’re just as passionately committed to supporting excellence, fielding teams that operate at the highest level of competition or performance.
The Seattle Academy Outdoor & Travel Program provides opportunities for students to challenge themselves both physically and emotionally, to deepen relationships, and to develop a responsible understanding of cultures, people, and the lands through which they travel.
The Seattle Academy Service Learning program helps prepare students to be engaged, reflective, and productive contributors in a changing world.
Seattle Academy welcomes and binds together a diverse independent school community - we believe that a diverse school community is essential to education. We therefore foster and encourage respect for human differences, growth of the individual, and diversity within the school population.
Our SAAS community is full of exciting stories about and opinions of our students, Alums, families and faculty/staff. Our voices reflect the inspiring impact of SAAS within our school, community and the world at large.
