About Hutch School

Who We Are

For more than 25 years, we have been educating and supporting patients and family members who are dealing with serious illness while temporarily living in Seattle.


Learning for Everyone

We have group program options to help family members stay together as well as individual tutoring programs for student patients unable to be in a group setting. 


Educating with Empathy

Our teachers, counselors and administrators provide a rigorous and fun educational environment for students coming from all over the United States.

Welcome Aboard

Children in Kindergarten to Grade 12 are welcome to enroll at Hutch School at any time during the school year.

Hutch School to close at end of school year

For the past 30 years, the Hutch School has provided educational services to assist both patients and family members. Not only has the school provided support to patients, it has been a passion project and a true labor of love. Sadly, declining enrollment, coupled with the mounting challenges and costs of delivering K-12 services in a sustainable and comprehensive manner has led to the difficult decision of closing the school in June 2018 at the conclusion of the current school year.

In addition to helping families connect with resources in the Seattle Public School system, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) will be providing support and assistance to displaced staff by helping them pursue new opportunities.
