Puget Sound Moving Up Largest Freshmen Class in the History of PSAA

November 01, 2005 | Brian Burton

Puget Sound Adventist Academy started the year off strong with an enrollment of 93 high school students, 30 of whom are freshmen. During the first week of school, area pastors came to the campus to pray with the students and dedicate their year to God. Students and staff carried that spiritual energy into a Friday evening vespers program, held on Alki Beach along Seattle's Puget Sound.

In addition to the strong spiritual programs being held at PSAA, the academic programs are continuing to keep pace. The math and science departments are now equipped with new laptop computers and projectors in each classroom, allowing teachers to provide students with information in a dynamic way. The science laboratory was upgraded this year with additional funding for hands-on materials to help students learn how lessons in science apply to real-world career paths.

In addition to the spiritual atmosphere and the new technology, we're delighted with the positive attitude on campus. Among our returning students are several transfer students from public school who have expressed a desire and commitment to be a part of an Adventist academy. Helping in that transition are senior class members, who have shown exceptional spiritual leadership this year and are dedicated to ensuring that all new students feel a part of our school family.
