In the late 1990’s, SAAS was outgrowing existing facilities and the Administration determined that Seattle Academy must make an investment in additional teaching spaces. The Seattle Academy community united in support of this vision.
In 1999, Seattle Academy launched the Campaign for Performance which exceeded its $6 million goal and built a connected Arts Center and Gym on the 12th Avenue block. After the success of The Campaign for Performance, the Arts Center opened in 2001 and the Gym in 2002. The new facilities created exponential opportunities for program expansion in both Arts and Athletics – growth we continue to see today.
The Prep for Life campaign raised over one million dollars to continue to maintain a healthy, economically diverse community, supplying financial aid both to enroll qualified, deserving students and to allow all enrolled students to participate fully in student activities.
Our Endowment Campaign successfully established a SAAS endowment in 2010 with over $8 million in gifts. Invested funds create revenue that supports financial aid, teachers and SAAS programs. Learn more about supporting our Endowment.
