    Please Note: Families wishing to drop off their translated paper referral form at the John Stanford Center may do so using the South Entrance. Security will admit you to the building, you will fill out a Covid-19 attestation, and then drop off your referral in the Advanced Learning box provided.

    Private, Charter, and Homeschool Students

    Students who reside within the Seattle Public Schools boundaries, but are not currently enrolled with Seattle Public Schools may be tested for Advanced Learning after enrolling for the 2021 school year.

    Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the testing registration for students not currently attending Seattle Public Schools has been postponed to June 2021. More information will be posted on the website as it becomes available.


    Parents and guardians of students who participate in the eligibility evaluation process may choose to appeal the decision. Read more about the appeals process.
