Seattle Urban Academy began in 1989 in response to the plight of street youth. A small, drop-in tutoring center was born in Seattle’s Central District — a place for street youth and adults to experience a welcoming environment and a sense of belonging.
Today, SUA has become a thriving, faith-based educational community of growth and maturity. Students are graduating and moving on to higher education with a passion and purpose to strengthen their community through meaningful careers.
Class sizes are small, which means, as a student, you will receive personalized education. Teachers, staff, and volunteers work every day to help you understand, find success in school, and plan for your future.
