Philosophy and Goals

"Our mission is to promote the development of a positive self-image in each student, and allow every child to learn in his own style at his own rate."

Founded in 1982, we are a private, State approved day school offering academically at-risk, learning disabled, ADD, and/or ADHD students grades 9-12 a school established especially for them. The need for a highly individualized academic program was the guiding force that led to the formation of St. Christopher Academy. It is this force that forms the core of our curriculum and its implementation.

At St. Christopher Academy, all children are given the opportunity to reach their full potential. "I will do everything possible to ensure students' success and happiness" Darlene Jevne, the St. Christopher Academy Director says. "Our goal is to provide programs that allow every child to learn in his or her own style, and at his or her own rate."

St. Christopher Academy was featured in "MEET THE BUSINESS", published in Seattle's Child, Eastside Parent, and Puget Sound Parent.

St. Christopher Academy is a unique, independent school for students with specific learning disabilities and difficulties, grades 9-12. The school provides an excellent educational environment, which fosters creativity, safety, and individual growth for students.

We provide small classes and a specialized staff to teach students the skills needed to learn independently, engage in self-advocacy, and gain confidence in their academic ability. St. Christopher Academy strives to prepare its students to succeed academically and socially to their full potential.
