Stand out from the crowd! Enroll in Boat School today!

pig and  cowsEnrollment at the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding is now open for the 2014-2015 school year. The new Enrollment Forms and School Catalog are published and posted online at the following link:

The Boat School has capacity for a new cohort of 55 students each year, the 12-month Associates Degree programs starting on or around the date of October 1 and ending the following mid-September.

Enrollment is managed on a “first come first serve” basis so don’t wait too long to send in your enrollment forms. They must be accompanied by a $300 payment to cover the $100 registration fee and a $200 tuition deposit. (The tuition deposit is refundable if you happen to cancel your enrollment before school starts.)

The Boat School keeps an extensive Housing List for enrolled students with over 9 pages of rental properties listed by owners who want to rent to students. Rents in our area go for about $400 for a studio apartment, $600 for a one bedroom apartment. If you wish to share housing, we will facilitate communication between you and the other students to consider arrangements such as renting houses together.

We welcome everyone to attend the School – retirees, recent high school graduates, second career explorers, veterans, vocational rehabilitation participants, women, and international students! Contact our Director of Education, Pamela Roberts, if you have any questions or if you need assistance. You can reach her at [email protected] or 360-385-4948 ext. 307.
