PSCS is currently accepting applications for Middle & High School

PSCS is a Washington state approved middle & high school, currently accepting 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 accepts applications via Ravenna—an online application hub. You'll need to create a profile for/with your prospective student and follow the steps as prompted.

Puget Sound Community School

Fall Open House for Prospective Families

Saturday, November 6, 2021 1-3pm In Person!

PSCS Open Houses are informal gatherings for families interested in learning more about community-centered education. We call it an Open House, but hope you'll plan to join us at the start of the event, as we'll be following a set program. You can expect to hear from staff members, students, parents, and alumni about our program, experience mini versions of our classes, and learn more about what makes PSCS different from other school models.

Please RSVP HERE and tell us who will be coming that day, the ages/grades of your student(s),
and your favorite ice cream flavor!
