Now accepting applications for 2014-2015 school year!

Applications for the fall are being accepted at this time and those submitted now will be reviewed by the Avanti staff in May 2014. Freshmen candidates are encouraged to submit applications in the early spring as the 9th grade cohort is small and tends to fill rather quickly. Candidates selected for an interview should be able to demonstrate an ability to thrive in an independent (self-directed) learning environment.


YEE! Youth Entrepreneur Expo

Avanti High School will host Olympia School District’s inaugural YEE! Youth Entrepreneur Expo for Olympia School District students in grades 1-12. The Expo will feature 24 booths and will be held in Avanti High School’s gymnasium located next to the Knox Building, 1113 Legion Way on Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 10am – 3pm.


Take Our Budget Survey!

Each spring the Olympia School District plans and enacts its annual budget. One of our goals is to gather as much community feedback as possible. As part of that effort, we are pleased to offer an online survey to seek your opinion about where the District should concentrate its resources. The information you provide will be used to help the Superintendent and School Board build and implement the District’s 2014-15 school year budget. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey you will find an open-ended question where you can offer additional ideas and feedback. We invite you to take the survey at the link below. Thank you for helping us set spending priorities for your local school district!

Ingersoll Stadium Usage Procedures

Last fall the school board approved Procedure 4260P(D), making changes to Ingersoll Stadium security. Part of that change involved additional locking of Ingersoll and the issuing of electronic key cards to community members so they access the stadium for personal recreational use. Key cards are available to community members and students. 

On February 21, 2014 key cards became required for access to the stadium. For the safety and security of students and staff, the stadium will be closed to public access, even with a key card, when an Olympia School District (OSD) school is conducting classes, activities or athletic practices. For more information on Ingersoll security, including instructions for obtaining a key card, visit our Ingersoll web page.
