Puget Sound Adventist Academy

Preparing students to be life-long learners, critical thinkers, and tomorrow’s leaders.

Why PSAA

"As someone who attended from 1st through 10th grade, I have a unique perspective on KSDA and PSAA. Attending PSAA provides an amazing learning environment where Christian behavior is modeled every day by faculty and staff. Ultimately, what each parent wants for their child is to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to choose to fully leverage the God given talents they have been given. PSAA provides a place where one's personal relationship with God can grow while also having opportunities to develop a diverse and broad set of life experiences."

"PSAA is not just a school, it's four years of my life I truly won't forget. To look back on and remember the support from parents, from teachers, from each student of the school proves it's more than just a school, but a family. I am also appreciative of the strong volleyball program, which laid the foundation for me to be picked up to play college volleyball. I’ll never forget the lessons in leadership, Christian sportsmanship and communication, I learned on the court, that I’ll be able to use off the court for the rest of my life."

"We have a unique perspective on why parents should make the decision to enroll their children at PSAA, because we have four kids who have either previously or are currently enrolled at this high school. There are three key areas where we believe our schools shine: 1) Desirable teacher-to-student ratios- this allows teachers to invest more in each student to ensure their success. 2) A solid academic curriculum coupled with an outstanding music program and competitive team sports programs- every student has a chance to excel in the areas where their interests take them. 3) A faith-based approach- in the crazy world we live in, it is great to know that our children are being taught what we believe by teachers who share our ethics and morals. Raising kids well requires a team-based approach and KSDA and PSAA schools carry the banner for providing a safe, enriching, fun place to learn and develop our kids as productive members of society."

"The faculty truly care about each of us and are thoroughly involved in our growth as individuals. PSAA was a really fun place to go to school, especially because of its extracurricular activities offered, such as a strong athletic program, mission trips and travel opportunities where we got to experience not just academics in the classroom, but real-world experiences."

"As a parent and coach at PSAA, I would describe the school as a family. Everything about the school from the teachers, parents, students, and alumni, to the music department and athletics all support and love each other. With the small classes and tight-knit atmosphere, the teachers really have a personal interest in and relationship with the students. They are able to focus on individualized learning to make sure each child succeeds in the classroom. As the coach of the volleyball team, I have been able to witness first hand the dedication of the students and the staff for the sports programs. It is also an honor to be a part of the amazing Christian atmosphere and see the attitude that is demonstrated by the athletes in games and all aspect of school life. Our family has been blessed to be a part of the PSAA/KSDA family for the last 15 years and it will hold a special place in our hearts as alumni parents going forward."

"Why PSAA? Funny enough, I didn't have much of a choice since my siblings went there and it was all set up for me but I couldn't be more happy about that. I was immediately embraced and loved by this community. Everyone is so caring and loving that we have become a family. I've created memories that will last forever and friendships that will last a lifetime!"
