Our team of coordinators is an additional layer of support that works to holistically support and know students at each grade level as they navigate through their arc of time at Seattle Academy. Our coordinating team is an integral component of our guiding principle to Know the Kid.
Each grade level, 6-12, has grade-specific coordinators who are able to build relationships with students, support student advisors, serve as a liaison and student advocate, and provide an additional point of contact for students and families. Coordinators also plan and facilitate grade level events and activities.
Our coordinating teams ensure that all students feel seen and known as they navigate middle school. A major focus of each grade-level coordinating team, 6th-8th grades, is supporting students and families through the unique transitions, experiences, and skills that define each grade level experience.
Each grade level team works to support students as developmentally appropriate; for example, the 9th-grade team focuses on the transition from middle school to high school, while the 12th-grade team works closely with our College Advising department to support their process. Many of our coordinators are also teachers, coaches, club advisors, and trip leaders, which allows them to see and speak to students from a variety of different lenses.
Our Coordinating Team
Coordinators play a significant role in the lives of our students. From helping a new 6th-grader open their locker to supporting students as they navigate the complexity that is high school, our coordinating team helps students and families feel seen and known during their SAAS experience.
