President J. Derek McNeil, PhD, invites incoming students to not only an informing but formative experience at The Seattle School.

I sat with a student one day and she said to me, ‘This school takes your whole body.’ Do you really want to get into this? Do you really want to give that much? Learning is collaborative. That means we do it together. That means there is some degree of expertise that we offer. But we are learning together. We also recognize that you bring knowledge. You’re not a blank slate. You’re full of knowledge as well. And if we don’t collaborate with you in that learning process, we’ll miss you and you with us, and we’ll miss some of the pieces that are important to hold. We are robustly Christian, deeply questioning, and profoundly human. This is a great experience to engage life and learning together.”
