Northwest Academy’s community includes students from throughout the Portland Metropolitan area, Lake Oswego, Beaverton, and Tigard as well as Vancouver Washington.
Students utilize the Central Library, Portland State University, and nearby museums and performing arts centers.
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.
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.
