Visitation Mornings are scheduled in groups on a specific day of the week from 8:4o-11:40am.

Once a student has been offered admission and decides to join the PSCS community, an enrollment contract and deposit are due 3/22/19.

PSCS is a Washington state approved middle & high school and accepts applications for students entering grades 6-10. To be enrolled at PSCS is to be immersed in an ongoing process of collaboration that requires personal engagement and commitment to the community. As such, we require prospective parents and students to experience PSCS in person in order to see this process first-hand. Once you are ready to apply, PSCS now accepts applications via Ravenna—an online application hub.
