State Approval Renewed!!

Stillpoint School is pleased to announce that we have received Washington State approval to
enroll students from kindergarten through sixth grade for the 2017-2018 school year.  
Stillpoint School is the only State approved private elementary school on San Juan Island,
and has been so for the past 11 years.

To receive State approval, a school must meet state standards concerning curriculum,
teacher certification, health and safety conditions, and other requirements to demonstrate
our ability to provide a quality education for our students.   Applications for State approval
are reviewed by the Washington State Board of Education, which has issued Stillpoint
School a Certificate of Private School Approval for "having met all the conditions specified"
in State law for private schools.

Students who are not home schooled are required by State law to be enrolled in a public
school or a State approved private school. For more information about a Stillpoint education,
please call the school at 360-378-2331 (during the summer months, when the school is not in
session, messages are checked regularly) or email

Stillpoint School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit school.  Donations to the school or to the
Sally W. Bryan Scholarship Fund are fully tax deductible.

Stillpoint School is very proud to be the island's only state approved private K-6 school.
We are proudly listed on the following websites and publications:
