Student Stories

Eastside Academy is the only school of its kind in Washington. No other school offers such a unique approach to education, where healing and learning go hand-in-hand. At Eastside Academy, we don't just educate our students with grades and test scores; we strive to give students the tools they need to lead healthy, purposeful lives.

To see the transformation made in the lives of our students, please watch the moving testimony of Kevin's story in the video below.
