We seek to enroll students who are invested in community and excited to be active participants in their own education.
PSCS is a Washington state approved middle & high school and accepts applications for students entering grades 6-10. To be enrolled at PSCS is to be immersed in an ongoing process of collaboration that requires personal engagement and commitment to the community. As such, we require prospective parents and students to experience PSCS in person in order to see this process first-hand.
If your family is considering PSCS, please carefully read through the links below and the Application Timeline. Note that the first step is to email or call the Admissions Office to start a dialogue with us about your prospective student.
We are implementing a new online Admissions service called Ravenna, over the next couple of weeks.
PSCS application dates are still applicable, but will be done electronically this year.
