Our Mission

Seattle Academy is a dynamic community that challenges students to QUESTION, IMAGINE, AND CREATE in order to CONTRIBUTE boldly to a changing world.


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. 

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. 

Community Action

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

Student Experience

Life at Seattle Academy is beyond what happens in the classroom. We are home to a vibrant community of students pushing themselves in areas of interest, trying new things, taking risks, and building meaningful relationships. 

Community Voices

Our SAAS community is comprised of students, alumni, families, faculty and staff with unique backgrounds and stories to tell. Our voices reflect the inspiring impact that SAAS has within our school, community, and the world at large.
