Seeing the school in action can be the difference between a basic appreciation of our philosophy and a true understanding of how PSCS works.
If you are interested in applying to PSCS please go to our Admissions Page and after reading through the information, contact us to start the process.

You will be engaged in a short conversation to find out a bit about your family and what your child loves to do. At this point, we can respond to any immediate questions you might have about PSCS. However, there is only so much you can learn about PSCS through a phone call or an email. The best way to learn about the school is to spend some time on campus.
A school visit is an important part of the Admission Process and getting to know PSCS. Most Visitation Mornings are scheduled for Tuesdays at 8:45am. While we prefer that guests come on scheduled Visitation Days, we are sometimes able to accommodate visits at other times. Visitation Mornings are an opportunity for interested community members and prospective parents/students to meet with our Director of Admissions, join us for our daily Check-in (an important part of our day), learn more about PSCS, meet available teaching staff members and current students, as well as visit one or two classes. Visitation Mornings are usually scheduled for Tuesday mornings at 8:45am. Occasional exceptions can be made.

At Puget Sound Community School, we believe that functioning in a truly diverse community is a vital 21st-century skill. We define diversity to include race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, gender identification, sexual orientation, different physical and cognitive abilities, and religion. We recognize that there may be other areas in need of attention that we have not identified here, or that will emerge with time. PSCS has an open admissions policy that reflects our aim to respect individual differences and learn from diversity. We admit students of any racial, national, religious, or ethnic origin, from all backgrounds, belief systems, family dynamics, and orientations. In short, we recognize and invite the participation of all people, not discriminating on any basis in the administration of our programs. PSCS relies on an active Anti-Bias Committee that currently includes members of the student body, staff, and board of trustees to help focus our efforts. The goal of the Anti-Bias Committee is to help ensure that PSCS is a place where no group of people feels categorically excluded. Committee members support the ongoing work of students, staff, and trustees, and hold a space for potentially difficult conversations; they have identified and articulated race and ethnicity as an area of focus for PSCS.
Meow meow meow, meow meow… Perhaps I shall translate for PSCS Teaching Staff member, Chrissy Wakeling. Chrissy lives in West Seattle with her two cats, lovely garden, and DVD collection. Like her cats, Chrissy is a skilled digger. Whether it is growing veggies and flowers for her co-workers to enjoy or digging up woolly mammoths, she likes getting her hands dirty. While Chrissy has a deep love for the PNW (home), she learns best through experiences and tries to travel as much as possible. Some of her favorite places (so far): India (for the people), Iceland (for the geology), Australia...Read More
