Transformation Begins Here
Every student has their own educational journey. Create your path at NOVA Middle School.
Worried your child will be lost in a sea of middle school kids? NOVA is an intentionally small community that recognizes students as individuals.
It isn’t just about challenging academics. NOVA also supports social, emotional, and leadership development during the critical middle school years.
Does your child seem like a mash-up of different intellectual, emotional, and social ages? We support kids (and their parents) during this transformative time.
Wondering about your middle schooler's future? Apply now for 6th, 7th, or 8th grade.

Every summer, we are pleased to open our doors to students moving into 4th, 5th, and 6th grade for weeklong NOVA experiences. Our priorities: learning, connection, and fun!
We place an emphasis on creating our school culture within the week's experience, with classes that offer exciting learning but also careful attention to kindness and compassion. Every year, the offerings are different, but the purpose remains the same: to inspire students' wonder and curiosity, to share our approach with the wider community, and to allow families with younger students to get to know NOVA.
NOVA is more than just an accelerated curriculum. We are the only full-time middle school for highly capable students in the South Puget Sound. Our intentionally designed program offers an unparalleled education and a life-long advantage for our graduates. NOVA students develop their leadership skills, their confidence, their sense of self, and go on to success in high school and beyond. But don't just take our word for it. Watch 10th grader Molly explain it better than we ever could!
