Application Timeline

1. Inquiry

The first step in the PSCS admissions process is to send an inquiry—either fill out the form above or log in to Ravenna—and start a dialogue about your student(s).

2. Admissions Open House

Each fall we host an Open House where prospective families can meet alum, current students, and our staff, take some "classes," and tour PSCS.

PSCS Fall Open House will be Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 12-3pm. Attending the Open House is not a requirement.

3. Visitation Mornings for Families

Visitation Mornings are scheduled in groups on a specific day of the week from 8:4o-11:40am. We consider these to be a critical part of our application process and we do occasionally schedule them outside of the regular admissions cycle. These are for the student and parent(s).

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.
