Our admissions process is designed to help us get to know each student through a classroom visit, the student’s written work, and entrance exams written and evaluated by our teachers.
At every grade level, we respect our students’ abilities to comprehend challenging ideas and demonstrate their understanding with insight and creativity.
Teachers include professional artists, writers, and performers as well as former college instructors.
Northwest Academy students write two substantial, college-level thesis projects in their senior year. All juniors and seniors receive college credit through the PSU Challenge Program.
