One Week to Apply to Secondary Schools of Choice

schools of choice apply by jan. 31 with school logos

There is only one more week to apply to our secondary schools of choice. The application will close at 11:00 p.m. on January 31. 

Please use our online application portal to complete and submit an application.

Students have a lot of options when it comes to middle and high school--either their neighborhood school or a school of choice. Secondary schools of choice include Big Picture, CHOICE Academy, Raisbeck Aviation High School, the new Maritime High School and the Highline Virtual Academy as well as the International Baccalaureate (IB) program at Mount Rainier High School. 

Please check out the newly-added information sessions below for the Highline Virtual Academy.

We encourage you and your student to find their best fit.

 Space is limited for schools of choice. A lottery process is used when there are more applications than available seats. The lottery drawing will take place on March 2 with automatic family notification about whether students were accepted or placed on a waitlist. The full lottery results, including waitlist order, will be posted to the website by 5:00 p.m. on March 3.
