Our Curriculum

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. Across classrooms, students take an inquiry-based approach to learning, allowing questions to drive both teacher-led and student-led investigations. 

This method of teaching and learning fosters independence and integrity, the ability to collaborate and take risks, and the capacity to cope with change and ambiguity. Ultimately, the Culture of Performance develops a spirit of inquiry and engagement that results in an empathy for the human condition, an understanding of the meaning of excellence, and an opportunity to achieve academic, artistic, and athletic success.
