In response to the coronavirus pandemic and following guidance from Gov. Kate Brown’s office, Northwest Academy’s campus is currently closed with our students learning remotely through our distance learning program and administrative staff working off-site. We are tentatively scheduled to re-open campus on April 28. All meetings, activities, and events are suspended during this time.
Our College Counselor works with students to find schools that will be a good match for them. Northwest Academy graduates attend a diverse selection of colleges and universities across the country including Duke University, Bard College, New York University, and Rhode Island School of Design.
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.
At every grade level, we respect our students’ abilities to comprehend challenging ideas and demonstrate their understanding with insight and creativity.
