About Charles Wright Academy
Tacoma, Wash. – Charles Wright Academy teamed with Annie Wright Schools for the 11th annual Wright Connection college program, during parents and students from both schools had the opportunity to meet with deans of admissions from colleges and universities from across the country.
Tacoma, Wash. – Charles Wright Academy honored the school's history and mission during Founders' Day celebrations on Thursday, April 17. Parents were invited to breakfast in the Middle School Commons, where students, faculty, and families gathered for a delicious buffet of baked pastries, eggs, bacon, pancakes, and more prepared by CWA's food service team, led by Sheila Clemans. In the afternoon, Lower, Middle, and Upper schoolers gathered in the Wight Gym for the annual all-school Founders' Day assembly—the second of two all-school assemblies during the academic year (the other being the holiday assembly in December).
Tacoma, Wash. – Charles Wright Academy presents a short film highlighting the faculty Commitments to students in honor of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the first graduating class of Tarriers.
CWA faculty adopted the 11 Commitments in the fall of 2012, and as the second academic year after their implementation comes to a close, the school commissioned a video from Two Dogs Barking in the hopes of further engraining the Commitments into Tarrier hearts and minds. Featuring faculty members and administrators across all divisions and grade levels, the short film highlights our classrooms, buildings, athletic fields, and nature trails and showcases the ideals that influence CWA community culture. Watch the video and read all of the Charles Wright Commitments below.
Tacoma, Wash. – Last week, Middle School students attending Charles Wright Academy set aside their regular studies and embarked on Middle School Days. The annual event has been offered continuously for almost 40 years and continues to be one of the most popular experiences for both students and faculty today.
