Welcome to the Best of SAAS magazine. We’re excited to share our Fall 2019 edition showcasing Seattle Academy's 2018-19 school year including student profiles, academic highlights, signature programs, and more!
The Seattle Academy Middle School Robotics Club is having a season of change and growth! The club is the largest it has ever been with over thirty students and is now competing in a league known as First Tech Challenge (FTC).
My name is Sierra Lorenzini and I graduated from Seattle Academy in 2015, which feels like both a lifetime and a blink of an eye ago. After SAAS, I attended Duke University from which I graduated this past May with a major in Visual and Media Studies, a minor in Computer Science, and a certificate in Information Science.
On Thursday, October 31, the Middle School celebrated Mix-It-Up Day! Mix-It-Up Day is celebrated at schools across the country promoting connection, cross grade-level interaction, and getting to know new people.
On October 27, Seattle Academy enthusiastically hosted the first-ever TEDxYouth event in Seattle. TEDxYouth@Seattle was designed to empower and inspire young people to share ideas worth spreading. In addition to hosting this event on our campus, we had SAAS alumni, students, faculty, and staff engaged with all aspects of the program.
This past weekend, the Lake Washington Rowing Club hosted the fortieth Head of the Lake Regatta. Shelter Gimbel-Sherr ’23 and Meg Carver ’23 were members of the Girls U-17 Coxed 4x boat that finished first in their division.
Both the Seattle Academy boys’ golf and tennis teams experienced championship seasons this fall.
Seattle Academy offers over sixty active student clubs for the 2019 - 2020 school year. Clubs range from informal and internal-facing, to external projects and partnerships with national organizations. The hope is that there is something for every student.
