Classical Liberal Arts Education in the Catholic Tradition

Emerald Heights Academy

Welcome to Emerald Heights Academy

Teach the Mind. Educate the Heart. Form the Will.

Where Character Counts

You want a better education for your child — one that goes beyond “Common Core” and teaches real-world skills for lifelong success like public speaking, critical thinking, and leadership.

You want an education in the Catholic tradition that forms your child, mind, heart, and will.

Emerald Heights Academy is located in Bellevue, Washington, and provides a liberal arts education in the Catholic tradition to students in preK4 through grade 8. At Emerald Heights Academy, we know that educating the leaders of tomorrow starts today. Working in partnership with parents, we strive to develop the whole person by fostering maturity, integrity, and the ability to give of oneself in service to others in imitation of Christ.

Top 5 reasons to attend EHA:

1. Strong Catholic formation, excellent teachers and accelerated, Catholic and non-Common Core curriculum.

2. Small class sizes for safe, personalized learning.

3. In-person learning, full-time, 5 days a week.

4. Liberal arts education providing tools for lifelong success through personalized learning: faith & character formation, public speaking, critical thinking, and leadership.

5. An affordable private school in the Catholic tradition with funding available for qualifying families.

Small class sizes, personal attention in a warm, welcoming environment and academic excellence in the Catholic tradition are hallmarks of an Emerald Heights Academy education.

Our goal is to help each student to reach his or her full potential. Emerald Heights Academy believes that education involves the development of key intellectual abilities including analyzing, synthesizing, relating and evaluating.
