Building the Whole Mind

At SAI we prioritize innovative thinking and creative solutions for reaching life goals.

The School of Art and Innovation is a Duvall, Washington based multi- faceted program. We offer a range of options in career and college planning to full spectrum art and design classes. Our rigorous mentorship program gives students the opportunity to thrive in a classroom environment that promotes innovative thinking and offers them the freedom to create their own new and diverse concepts. Students are challenged to research, strategize and implement a plan for achieving their personal vision and career goals. Our award-winning program emphasizes professionalism, intellectual pursuit, critical-thinking skills and creative problem-solving.

Ours is a whole-minded approach. SAI is dedicated to launching our students out into the world as leaders ready to build the future.

"Watching the SAI students grow during the suspenseful journey to adulthood is a pathway to infinite possibilities. Students thoughtfully create everything from fashion design to sketching the elements of a scientific process while envisioning how the functions are integrated."
- Paula Harper Christiansen
