We seek to enroll students who are invested in community and excited to be active participants in their own education.


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 action, so they can see this process first-hand. Once you are ready to apply, PSCS now accepts applications via Ravenna—an online application hub.
