Charles Wright Academy

7723 Chambers Creek Rd W, Tacoma, WA 98467

Located on a suburban, 100-acre campus, CWA was founded by parents interested in providing a rigorous curriculum in the liberal arts for their sons. In 1970, the school became coeducational. Elective courses in all disciplines, computer science, an Advanced Placement program and the opportunity for independent study complement the traditional college preparatory course of studies. The academy also offers complete arts, athletic and outdoor education programs. The five-day winterim enables upper school students to engage in experiential programming not found in the regular curriculum. Boys and girls in grades 9-12 satisfy a 15-hour community service requirement each year.
