The Seattle University Youth Initiative K-12 Program connects resources to our partner schools to form a pipeline of academic support for youth attending Bailey Gatzert Elementary, Washington Middle School, and Garfield High School. 

Our goal is to ensure that youth graduate from high school and are prepared to succeed in college and in life.  In partnership with teachers and community organizations; we provide tutoring and academic support; reinforce academic behaviors and learning strategies; promote student engagement and motivation; and provide college awareness and readiness opportunities.  The types of activities offered and the level of resources available, vary from site to site; however, providing youth with positive adult relationships in a safe structured setting, is fundamental to all SUYI K-12 engagement.

In 2012, Seattle Public Schools opened a Middle College High School on the Seattle University campus to provide a high quality “small school” learning environment for 50 high school students including SUYI neighborhood youth.  The College of Education houses the school and several University academic programs provide direct support to the high school students.
