     The Washington Federation of Independent Schools (WFIS) is the umbrella organization for private education in Washington State. With seventy percent of the independent student population enrolled in member schools, WFIS is the only statewide vehicle for regular communication and strategic development between the many different constituencies. 

 

     WFIS schools are affiliates of the Catholic dioceses in the state; the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI); the Christian Schools International (CSI); Lutheran Schools; Montessori schools; the Pacific Northwest Association of Independent Schools (PNAIS); the Seventh-day Adventist Schools (SDA); and numerous other religious and independent institutions, including the Waldorf Schools, Hutterian Brethren, and those schools with sponsorship within the Jewish and  Islamic communities. 

 

     The WFIS Board of Directors consists of eighteen school heads representing the major constituencies chosen regionally by their respective bodies.  WFIS is networked with similar organizations in other states through the Council for American Private Education (CAPE).
