The Seattle School Preview

March 24, 2018

Our mission is rooted in text.soul.culture. With a commitment to training leaders and healers for transformative work in a hurting world, we believe that education must be innovative, collaborative, and transformative. The decision to pursue graduate study is a big one — one that requires you to truly connect with the work you are called to do and the way you need to be shaped in order to engage authentically and sustain in your calling.

With this in mind, we’ve created Preview. Faculty, staff, alumni, and current students come together to host this gathering twice a year, and we can’t wait to share it with you. Come spend a day with us to engage in energizing conversations about who we are and who you might become with us.

Faculty will share from their unique work at the intersection of theology, psychology, and culture; alumni will facilitate conversations around vocational imagination inspired by their own work in the world; and students will gather to share a cup of coffee and conversation about the experience of being a part of this learning community.

We’d love for you to join us for this one of a kind gathering and look forward to getting to know one another! Preview is free and all are welcome, but registration is required.

Around The Seattle School

The Seattle School is perfectly located within a few minutes’ walk of many of Seattle’s greatest treasures, so when you visit, be sure to enjoy a bit of our city.If you’re staying for a few days, check out this trip planner, sponsored by the Seattle Space Needle. You can input your flight times, and it will plan your lodging and activities according to your budget and interests. Now all you have to do is decide which of our coffee roasters is your favorite…

Pike Place Market (0.6 miles)

Pike Place Market is Seattle’s #1 ranked destination for visitors. It’s a busy hub of restaurants, locally farmed produce, and quality handmade goods. Bring your appetite, any spending money you have for souvenirs, and a little extra patience for crowds.

Olympic Sculpture Park (0.3 miles)

A part of the Seattle Art Museum, this waterfront hillside hosts dynamic and colorful sculptures, as well as places to sit and read, have a snack, or chat with a friend. Students have also been known to go for a run on the waterfront trail after class. Go to their website if you’re interested in one of their free public tours.

Seattle Space Needle (0.7 miles)

This little gem came to us with The World’s Fair in 1962, and is located in Seattle Center, home to several professional theatre companies, The Pacific Science Center, and the Experience Music Project. Go up to the top of the Space Needle for a 360-degree view of the city. Better yet, plan it at sunset, then get dinner and see a play nearby.

Seattle Art Museum (0.8 miles)

The SAM is a great spot to enjoy our modern art collection. Check the SAM site for special events and exhibitions. From October 1st to January 10th, they’ll have French Impressionist paintings from the National Gallery of Art. If you are currently in school, bring your student ID for a discounted ticket.

Seattle Public Library – Central Branch (1.3 miles)

It’s a modern architectural wonder: 11 stories of books in an environmentally sustainable building made of steel, concrete, and enough glass to cover five and a half football fields.There are beautiful city views, inventive hallways and seating areas, public art installations, and of course an extensive selection for the bookworm in you. Start with a delightful hot chocolate from Chocolati on the 3rd floor,and then wander to your heart’s content, making  sure to go all the way to the Reading Floor on the top level.
