Overview

Overview

Seattle Academy says

Seattle Academy of Arts and Sciences is an independent secondary school with a mission to prepare our students to participate effectively in modern society. We, therefore, seek a diversified student body and faculty. We offer a demanding college-preparatory curriculum integrating the arts and emphasizing a global perspective. We utilize the resources of our urban environment to extend our classrooms, to enhance our programs, and to engage out students in public service. Most of all, we seek to graduate motivated young men and women of talent and integrity who are prepared to contribute productively to a changing world. The philosophy which underlies a Seattle Academy education can be summarized as follows: Since the ability to communicate and express one's thoughts and feelings is an essential skill for a productive life, Seattle Academy conducts learning in a culture of performance. Students are challenged to take risks in front of a variety of audiences, combining disparate skills in moments of action in order to communicate complex ideas. This method of teaching fosters independence and integrity, the ability to collaborate and take risks, and the capacity to cope with change and ambiguity. Education is both timeless and contemporary, and we live today in a world of rapidly expanding technology. Seattle Academy, therefore, infuses technology into all areas of the school's program. Faculty use this complex resource to reshape and refine their courses, and students use technology to stretch their research and communication skills. Finally, the highest purpose of education is character development. The school teaches, and aspires to exemplify, the four core values of trust, respect, integrity, and responsibility.
