Who We Are:

West Sound Academy is a 6th-12th grade independent school that was built to ignite the curiosity of students and encourage them to make their own unique impact in the world. Founded in 1998, West Sound Academy offers a diverse student body and the International Baccalaureate curriculum designed to empower students to think critically, engage globally, and actively pursue their unique passions in an encouraging educational environment. Located in the heart of Kitsap County in Poulsbo, the school offers a hands-on and creative curriculum with small class sizes that attract students from all around the globe to learn and grow together.

“West Sound Academy has exceeded all our expectations. The atmosphere at WSA is filled with high expectations, but with those expectations comes incredible support. Caring teachers, small class sizes, and a student body that is inclusive and friendly all come together to make this an exceptional place to learn and grow. My two children are very different, but they have both found a home at WSA.” -- West Sound Alum Parent

What We Do:

We know that learning is a journey, not a formula to be followed. That is why we strive to create curated and collaborative educational experiences that support each student in harnessing their unique abilities and exercising them to their fullest potential. Rather than teaching students how to recite facts and adhere to formulaic standards of academic achievement, we strive to teach students to think critically and leverage their knowledge to excel in college and anywhere else life takes them next.

"I cannot support this school enough. As a student here, I have learned so much and made so many amazing friends and connections. The academics are rigorous - as one might expect - but the community is so supportive that it is not a competition to be the best, but rather how to make yourself the best person you can be. The teachers are very caring and easy to talk to and often have office hours or other ways to meet with them. WSA also prioritizes the student and legitimately cares about the student holistically. I would highly recommend anyone to this school who wants a spectacular education and a wonderful and growingly diverse community." -- West Sound Academy Student
