Northwest Academy is committed to inspiring students to discover their intellectual and artistic voices in a creative and supportive atmosphere fueled by curiosity and constructive challenge.
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.
Students utilize the Central Library, Portland State University, and nearby museums and performing arts centers.
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.
