Southeast Academy, in the heart of Columbia City in South Seattle, provides students access to small class sizes with a dedicated team of educators grounded in anti-racist practices and removing systemic barriers. We advocate for students academically, emotionally, and culturally and solve experiences together through Restorative Justice and trauma informed practices while offering alternative education options for high school students looking for something different than what a comprehensive high school offers.
Services on Campus: Teen Health Center, GED program, Giving Room for clothing and other resources, Treehouse, YouthCare, counselors to guide transition from high school including college admissions support and career readiness, and Job Readiness Training Programs.
Academics: Courses offered at Southeast include Advisory, Kingmakers, Job Readiness Training Programs (JRT), Art, English Language Arts and Math. Science and Social Studies courses are offered through our online platform, Apex. In addition, students who have an IEP participate fully in the general education setting.
Job Readiness Training Programs offer academic credit while exploring trade programs as students prepare for life after graduation. Students also receive a stipend for participating. Programs include: Sawhorse (construction), Bike Works (mechanics/engineering), Garden (science) and Café and Customer Service (culinary).
Our Pre-Apprenticeship Building Trades Program is unique to our school and provides students Career Technical Education (CTE) credit while providing a pathway to construction careers and access to industry certifications.
