Meet Dr. Ralph Perrin
Welcome to Puget Sound Adventist Academy!
We all know how difficult last year was on our students and their families, our faculty and staff. As the principal, I am looking forward to a year that with more understanding of this complicated situation. My hope is that at some point, we might get back what pre-COVID school years looked like—a year full of more in-person activities, smiles and high-fives! Either way, we are so grateful to be able to learn and grow together, in-person this year. We appreciate your continued prayers for our school family as we plan for the 2021-2022 school year.
What makes PSAA unique and special is that we are a great many things. We have a challenging and rewarding academic program, we have many different athletic opportunities, and have a growing music program.
But the key ingredient to our success is the staff that we have and the culture they create. Each week the staff meet to discuss challenges and solutions. The weekly meetings help us stay on the same page and make sure that together we are moving in the right direction.
As the principal of PSAA, I believe the foundation of learning is the relationship that students have with their instructors, which is one reason we pride ourselves in our small classroom sizes. This gives our students chances to connect with their teachers and provides them with extra time for individualized attention.
We strive to provide our students with opportunities for spiritual growth throughout the year. Whether it be at Connect, our school-wide trip to Rosario Beach, Week of Prayer, or our weekly school wide chapel. Our mission is not only to prepare our students for their future on this earth, but also beyond, which is why we strive to prepare them for an everlasting life with Christ.
The community and family-like culture that surrounds PSAA is made possible through the combination of school and home, and I thank you for being a part of making this possible.
I look forward to another year of growing, learning and improving. Thank you for being part of the journey.
Ron Jacaban, Principal
