Our Guiding Principles
At Seattle Academy, our cultural conversation, curriculum, teaching styles, and programs are grounded in the guiding principles of College and Life, Culture of Performance, Inclusive Community and Know the Kid. A student, as an individual, is encouraged and enabled to explore new things and build upon their existing experiences in a collaborative, supportive learning environment.
College and Life
SAAS prepares students for College and Life; we value curiosity and innovation, participation and excellence, and exploration and resolve.
We believe that an Inclusive Community embraces cultural agility, civic action, and a broad definition of human potential.
Culture of Performance
Our Culture of Performance fosters the integration of skills and knowledge, the ability to collaborate and take risks, and the capacity to confidently navigate change and ambiguity.
Know the Kid
Our commitment to Know the Kid establishes the foundation for healthy relationships and nurtures a mutual respect for each individual's strengths, challenges, and unique story.
