Welcome to Overlake Admission

Welcome to The Overlake School. We're so glad you have decided to consider us for your child’s education. Overlake is the oldest independent coeducational college preparatory program in the Seattle area. You can look back on the school's amazing history.

From its modest roots in the small basement of a local YMCA to the beautiful 73-acre hilltop campus of today, the physical resources of the school have changed greatly. But what has remained consistent throughout its history is a commitment to the mission of the school. Our mission challenges us to provide our students the tools to be successful academically in college and to help them develop the skills they need to be productive, engaged members of the communities they join later in life. Overlake graduates are entrepreneurs, writers, programmers, doctors, lawyers, aid workers, financiers, and scholars to name a few. The common theme when you talk to one of our graduates is that they received not only the skills to be successful in life, however they might define it, but that they have the social and emotional resources to live well, to build strong relationships, and to be engaged in communities that provide meaning in their lives.
