About Sewickley Academy

Greetings from the Head of School 

Welcome to Sewickley Academy, a private school located near Pittsburgh, PA!

At Sewickley Academy, we never rest on our laurels but seek each day to take advantage of our talents to do better than we did the day before. That is true of our faculty and staff, and it is true of our students, whose passionate involvement in the life of their school makes anything possible. Individually and collectively, they achieve a remarkable and inspiring level of excellence, whether debating in an African Issues class, mastering the intricacies of Mandarin characters, driving in the winning goal, throwing the perfect teapot, or delivering the performance of a lifetime on the stage. Our students take justifiable pride in their accomplishments, and they are prepared to take on the challenges of an ever changing world.

The 21st century has already shown us the importance of creative adaptability, critical thinking and problem-solving, effective oral and written communication, collaboration and intercultural competence, accessing and analyzing information, and curiosity and imagination. Our graduates leave us with a firm foundation that allows them to prosper and thrive, even when the world around them is uncertain and changing every day. It is nice that some things never change.

After you explore the virtual Sewickley Academy, I encourage you to come see us in person and look forward to welcoming you to our campus.
