Our History

Eastside Academy, at-risk youth, addiction, recovery, seattle, bellevue, redmond, BelPres Church, Overlake Church, high school, christian, privateBecause of people like you, Eastside Academy has been able to serve at-risk youth since 2001. Our story began when a group of educators realized that many children were not being served well in a traditional public school setting. 

They formed Eastside Academy, and what began as a school with only a handful of students, has grown to serve students at 2 campuses: Bellevue and Overlake.

Since opening our doors, we have helped hundreds of youth turn their lives around. Many of these students are now pursuing higher education, managing careers, maintaining their sobriety, and successfully raising families of their own.

Kevin is just one example of how Eastside Academy helped turn a student's life around.

Eastside Academy is like no other school in the state of Washington. Our model is unique, as there is no other place that youth can receive an education, recovery from addiction, mental health counseling, mentor relationships, housing, and alumni services under one roof. As a result, we serve families from all around the Puget Sound area.
