    MCHS @ Seattle University

    Our small community school is located on the campus of Seattle University, in partnership with the College of Education. The students benefit from a small, personalized high school that is integrated into the daily life of Seattle University.

    Each Monday we meet for Community Breakfast, which is catered by the university. Thursday mornings are dedicated to a series of learning experiences we call “Cultivating Imagination.” We visit with entrepreneurs, artists, activists, and teachers who think differently and model innovation. The rest of the week, our small group classes allow students personalized attention from their teachers, who help students succeed now while preparing for the future.
