About Us | Campus Tour & Directions

Seattle Academy’s urban campus on Seattle’s Capitol Hill is composed of six buildings within a three-block radius. Whether traveling by foot or by bus, Seattle Academy Students are safely introduced to the dynamic urban world in which they will build their futures. Upper School students move between the buildings during the school day, particularly to the Vanderbilt for their humanities, the STREAM Building for their science classes, the Arts Center for their music, theater, dance, or art classes, and the Gym for PE and athletics. Middle School students have all their academic classes in the Temple Building; their Physical Education is in the Gym and their arts classes are in the Arts Center.

Our central location provides Seattle Academy and its students with numerous urban resources. Local libraries, art museums, theaters, gyms, and fields are an integral part of school life. Seattle Academy has also fostered over 80 partnerships in the Seattle metropolitan area. Such partnerships include arts organizations, technology companies, service agencies, university labs and departments, businesses large and small, entrepreneurs, and a long list of Senior Project mentors. During their time at Seattle Academy, students have the opportunity to draw on these rich human and organizational resources around them as part of their coursework or their service learning.
