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.
Students utilize the Central Library, Portland State University, and nearby museums and performing arts centers.
Each Spring, students showcase their work in visual and performing arts. Dynamo! features middle school students while Esprit! celebrates the work of high school students.
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.
