About Rainier Valley Leadership Academy
We are a public, tuition-free, college preparatory charter school serving a diverse population in Southeast Seattle. Our mission is to help transform public education so ALL students graduate prepared for college, leadership and life.
Rainier Valley Leadership Academy will open August 2017, starting with our first sixth grade class, and will roll up to a full 6-8th grade middle school over the next three years.
The work of Green Dot Public Schools is driven by our unwavering belief in the potential of ALL students, eliminating barriers to learning and continuously striving for student success. We believe every student in every community deserves to go to a great school. The Seattle Advisory Team, a group of parents, educators, community members and stakeholders, came together in 2014 to explore the possibility of bringing Green Dot's model to the diverse Southeast Seattle community. We are thrilled to welcome our first class of 6th grade students in August 2017.
