Chief Kitsap Academy

One of the first tribal compact schools in the state, Chief Kitsap Academy (CKA) is operated by the Suquamish Education Department and recognized by the Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Programs at CKA are open to both junior high and high school students, grades 6-12. The vision of CKA is that every graduate is a confident, courageous, thoughtful, and respectful member of our community. We expect CKA students to pursue additional training and/or education and take on leadership roles in the Suquamish Tribe, the local area, and our global community.

CKA First Day of School is Wednesday, September 7, 2016
