How to Apply

We believe the application process should be reflective of the school’s culture. At Seattle Academy, that means an intentional focus for making this experience feel personal and rooted in building community. One of our guiding principles is “Know the Kid”  and that process begins as soon as we meet you. We look forward to starting that conversation! 

2024-25 School Year: The Standard Application timeframe has passed. We are accepting 2nd Round Applications. Before starting a 2nd Round application, please contact our Admissions team at admissions@seattleacademy.org or give our office a call at 206-324-7227. 

2025-26 School Year: Applications will open in September 2024.

Seattle Academy uses Ravenna, a web-based application system used by most independent schools in the area.
