Accepting Applications

Puget Sound Community School (PSCS) is accepting applications for our 2023-24 middle and high school cohorts. PSCS offers rolling admissions throughout the school year.

Founded in 1994, Puget Sound Community School (PSCS) is a small, independent middle and high school located in the Chinatown-International District of downtown Seattle. PSCS is committed to co-creating a brave space for community-centered education, critical curriculum, student choice, accountability, and thoughtful collaboration.

In an effort to build upon the equitable vision of the school, PSCS parents, staff, and the Board of Trustees agreed in 2021 to invest in non-hierarchical administration and leadership, rather than in a traditional Head of School. PSCS is run by an administrative staff with a collective experience of 40 years+, that functions collaboratively with a part- and full-time teaching staff, who together hold more than 60 years of collective experience in education, JEDI, Restorative Justice, Conflict Transformation, and student support.

Students who fully embrace the program offered at PSCS show consistent progress in self-expression, leadership, and skill-building in almost any endeavor, and start to recognize they are part of something bigger than themselves. Our alum are activists, social workers, artists, educators, guidance counselors, bakers, designers, . They work for NPOs, small businesses, developers, themselves, and more.

We STILL ask students and our community to dedicate themselves to the school’s three Core Commitments: Practice Integrity. Engage the Community. Act with Courage.

We’d love to chat more with you if you have questions or to simply (re)connect.
