Welcome to Seattle Christian High School!
Students and their families choose Seattle Christian High School for the spiritual focus, Christ-centered education and outstanding academics, according to a recent school community survey. Our average enrollment of 250 students is served by a full-time faculty of 15 and an average class size of 17. Ninety-eight percent of the faculty is teaching within their field of study, and 64 percent hold advanced degrees. When students graduate from Seattle Christian, they are prepared to become leaders on their college campuses, and in their churches, communities, and workplaces. The spiritual focus and strong academics at Seattle Christian are the foundation for this high level of preparation.
Seattle Christian is committed to fully integrating a Biblical worldview into every high school course. Our highly qualified faculty provides students with engaging, relevant and rigorous instruction in the context of our calling as followers of Christ. Bible classes such as Understanding the Times equip students to be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks for the reason for their hope, as we are instructed in I Peter 3:15. Students also put their faith into action each year through our InterSCession program. Students select week-long service, mission, or study experiences from 20 different opportunities led by faculty. In addition, students participate in weekly worship and chapel, and have opportunities to get involved in student-led Bible studies, discussion groups and outreach ministries.
Ninety-eight percent of our 2014 seniors are furthering their education in the fall of 2014. Sixty-four percent will be headed directly to 4-year colleges and universities, while thirty-four percent chose to start their college career at community, technical, Bible colleges and other specialty programs. The graduating class was offered nearly three million dollars in scholarships.
Our students’ performance on the Scholastic Achievement Test (SAT) reflects their academic accomplishments. Our students outperform the national and state scores:
Students also have opportunities to excel through Advanced Placement (AP) courses, music and fine arts, and athletic programs.

Our students' passing rate for all AP tests (61%) exceeded the national passing rate (58%) as well.
