Areas We Serve

The school’s 100-acre campus is located in Tacoma near Chambers Bay. We primarily serve four major areas in the South Puget Sound region: Pierce County, south King County, Kitsap County, and Thurston County. The school’s carpool directory helps parents and students who live a distance from campus coordinate rides to after-school activities.

Charles Wright provides daily bus service to students, for a fee, and every day more than 150 students ride our buses to school.

Charles Wright is a coeducational independent school for college-bound students age 3 to grade 12, with an elementary school, a middle school, and a high school all on one campus. We are a 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.

Pierce County

Our Tacoma bus route makes several stops in the North End neighborhood. We also have stops in Dash Point, Puyallup, Sumner, Steilacoom, Dupont, and Gig Harbor. 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!

South King County

Charles Wright Academy has more than 220 students living in south King County. The school offers these girls and boys daily bus service from Kent, Auburn, Des Moines, Midway, and Federal Way. The bus meets our Vashon students at the ferry terminal at Point Defiance.

Kitsap County

Charles Wright Academy’s campus is located close to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, making it easily accessible for students who live along the Highway 16 and Highway 3 corridors. Charles Wright offers daily bus service from Silverdale, Bremerton, and Port Orchard. We have students who live in Olalla, Keyport, Poulsbo, Vaughn, and Belfair as well.
