Step 1: Getting to Know FASPS

The best way to discover FASPS is during a school tour where you will see our teachers and students in action! In order to simplify the application process, FASPS now uses a web-based system called Ravenna for tour registration and the submission of applications. Many other local independent schools also use this system and common forms, making it easier for families applying to multiple schools. Families can use Ravenna to manage their applications from start to finish, including registration for parent tours, student visits, and open houses.

Submit an inquiry or sign up for a school tour: Please Click Here to create or log into your Ravenna account. If none of the tour dates or times work in your schedule, please email admissions@fasps.org to schedule a tour that works for you.

Step 2: The Application

For Families Who Live Out of State or Abroad

Every year, FASPS welcomes new students from all over the world. We receive many applications from families who are relocating to the Seattle area, and we understand that you may be unable to visit the school in person before your family’s arrival. In this case, our director of admissions will schedule a phone call with you in order to answer your questions and inform you about FASPS's vision and programs. A complete online application is required by the application deadline (depending on your child’s age, please consult the application instructions above in full).
