Areas we serve
Charles Wright Academy is located within the city of University Place, just east of the Chambers Bay Golf Course and trails. Our campus is within minutes of Lakewood, Fircrest and Steilacoom. We offer daily bus service across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge from Arletta, Fox Island and Gig Harbor, and we have two stops in the Canterwood community.
Our Tacoma bus route makes several stops in the North End neighborhood. We also have stops in Dash Point, Puyallup, Sumner, Steilacoom and Dupont. The bus meets our Vashon students at the ferry terminal at Point Defiance. In addition, we have several Charles Wright students living on Joint Base Lewis-McCord. The majority of our students live right here in Pierce County. A number of families have even moved to Pierce County just so their children can attend Charles Wright!
Charles Wright is an independent school for college-bound girls and boys from pre-kindergarten to the 12th grade, with an elementary school, middle school and high school all on one campus. We are diverse and inclusive learning community using the power of academic rigor, endless inspiration, and high expectations to help students reach their intellectual, artistic, and athletic best. The school's 100-acre campus is located in Tacoma, near Chambers Bay.
