Academy

The Academy is our program for students in grades 7-12. With our involved parent partners, experienced certificated teachers lead instruction and learning. Additionally, each student has a grade-level certificated teacher advisor who works to develop an individualized learning plan and meets with them at least once a month to discuss progress and provide support. 

Just like our classes for younger students, the classes are small and engaging. Students in core courses attend class two days a week and are assigned work to do at home the other work days. Elective enrichment courses meet one day a week with little to no work at home. 

7th and 8th Grade Core Classes – Tuesdays and Fridays

Elective Enrichment Courses (open to students through 8th grade) – Mondays and Thursdays

9th-12th Grades

Students in 9th-12th grades can participate in our capstone Academy program. Students who meet all graduation requirements, including state assessments, will earn a State of Washington diploma from Skagit Academy. Like our program for younger students, this is a partnership program between the school and families designed to be tailored and enriching for each student. High school students attend courses led by experienced certificated teachers and each are assigned a certificated teacher to serve as their advisor who works with them and their families to create an optimal learning plan and provide regular support (no less than one monthly meeting, often weekly).

Students attend onsite core classes on Tuesdays and Fridays with electives on Wednesdays. As we grow, we are offering more and more classes – currently over 30 options are available – with an average class size of 20 students. In these classes, certificated teachers lead instruction and oversight of the learning, similar to what you would find at a five day-a-week school. However, parent assistance is paramount. Weekly assignment sheets are distributed and collected along with completed assignments each week. Students are assigned work on work days they do not attend onsite classes and it is key that parents assist their students with work completion each week. 

Now what about extracurricular activities like sports and leadership? Skagit Academy students are welcome to participate in sports in their home districts and many do even at varsity level! We also have clubs at Skagit Academy including student government. 

Academy students are also able to participate in Running Start and Northwest Career and Tech Academy programs. In fact, these opportunities are quite popular with Skagit Academy students. Students and families work with their advisors to design a plan that works best for them and their needs and goals. As with any student at Skagit Academy, from Kindergarten to 12th grade, families and staff work together to provide a tailored and enriching educational experience for students.
