SAAS Pillars

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. 

Academics

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.

Arts

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.

Athletics

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. 

Outdoor & Travel

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. 

Service

The Seattle Academy Service Learning program helps prepare students to be engaged, reflective, and productive contributors in a changing world. 

Inclusive Community

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.

Community Voices

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.

The first All-School Meeting of the 2020-21 school year, held virtually on September 14, allowed our students to join together remotely and share in a schoolwide meeting experience. As our routines and daily schedules for the start of the school year are taking shape, it’s pivotal for our faculty, staff, and students to pause and dedicate time to a shared experience with one another.

A huge thank you to Dr. Kieran O’Mahony for an engaging Seattle Academy Parent Education sponsored webinar event on September 10, 2020. Dr. O’Mahony spent the evening helping parents better understand cognitive neuroscience in relation to the ability of students to learn, and how we as parents can create an environment to support our children as they learn and develop.

We are proud of our Seattle Academy students who continue to contribute boldly to our local and global community. These students rise to the challenge to give back to this changing world - bringing to life our SAAS Pillar of Service.  Here are recent examples to spotlight and ways you can participate:

SeattleDance2020

Recently, Seattle Academy Dance Faculty, Alicia Mullikin had her article, Recognizing Systemic Racism in Dance, published by SeattleDances.com. After realizing so many folks were asking now more than ever "How do I show up for people of color?" and wanting dance educators to understand how to do that in their classrooms, Alicia got together with an incredible group of experienced dancers of color on the west coast to discuss their shared experiences of discrimination within the dance world in hopes of providing a clear picture of how systemic racism is perpetuated through dance.
