Academy Programs

  • Serving Students in Grades 3-12

    Our award-winning, Washington State recognized academy is an innovative lab school providing families with an option in education. In partnership with the University of Washington Tacoma, our laboratory school is dedicated to research-based instruction and furthering innovation in education.

    Students and their siblings can attend school on one campus for the duration of their elementary, middle, and high school careers.

    We are home to six distinct programs to meet the needs of our students and their families.

    Elementary (Grades 3-6)

    Our academy provides an innovative educational option for students who are seeking strong, supportive academics in a small school, family-friendly environment.

    Emergence (Grades 7-8)

    The Emergence program is project-based and uses a multidisciplinary instructional approach.

    Link (Grades 7-12)

    The Link program is designed for current Kent School District students in grades 7-12 who are on the autism spectrum.

    New View (Grades 9-12)

    The New View program provides college readiness with targeted support for first-generation students.

    Rise (Grades 9-12)

    The Rise program is competency-based, and student learning is assessed through demonstrated essential tasks.

    Connect (Grades 11-12)

    The Connect program is designed for current Kent School District high school students in need of credit retrieval and credit achievement in a partial day, blended learning program. New students are accepted throughout the school year as space allows. 

    New Building for 2021-2022

    A new academy building is under construction at the corner of 104th and 208th in Kent. The new facility should open in the fall of 2021.
