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.
Teachers include professional artists, writers, and performers as well as former college instructors.
In addition to Community Service requirements in both the middle and high school, the entire school participates in service days during the year.
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.
