Yellow Wood Academy is a non-profit, nationally accredited K-12 school, located on Mercer Island, Washington. Our mission enables individualized learning, supported by teachers who specialize in creating a personalized learning experience where success is the journey. At Yellow Wood Academy, we provide customized one-to-one and/or small group instruction designed to match each student’s unique ability, temperament, passion and learning style. Our professional teachers and staff see each student’s full potential and we tailor the curriculum to ensure that our students thrive academically and socially, whether they are enrolled full-time, for tutoring or for test prep.

Our vision: Equip learners of all ages to lead happy, productive and generous lives. To achieve this vision, we engage and inspire all learners throughout their journey as they discover and build their future.

We’re all different. Which is why we don’t subscribe to cookie-cutter educations. Our philosophy is to fit the curriculum to the student. Not the other way around.

We believe that no matter how distracted, impatient, uninterested, anxious, or unengaged, the potential really is in there. It just needs to be coaxed out.

With patience, empathy and persistence, we work with our students to incite their natural curiosity and instill a love of learning.
