Sewickley Academy's Department of Support Services works collaboratively with faculty, students, and parents to help students cultivate their full individual and collective potential. Consultation and services are provided in the areas of counseling, reading, math, learning, and speech and language. The Academy provides direct support to students through one-on-one and/or small group sessions, as well as classroom-based facilitations in coordination with faculty to help teachers identify and support their students' personal and academic strengths.
Sewickley Academy enrolls a diverse student body with a variety of backgrounds, skills, talents, and interests. Personality and learning styles emerge as children develop. Recognizing that students develop, learn, and grow in a variety of ways, the Academy is committed to working with teachers and parents to help children understand their unique personalities and learning profiles. Parents are valued "partners in education" and are consulted and closely involved in individualized planning on behalf of a child's personal and academic success.
Support Services is a department of Academic Affairs and supports students in all divisions, PK through Grade 12.
Sewickley Academy is dedicated to supporting the academic, social, and emotional well-being of children. Each division has a formal structure to facilitate comprehensive support. All three school divisions have Resource Teams that meet weekly to discuss students who come to their attention via teachers, students, and/or parents. The Resource Team's primary goal is to ensure that the needs of students are addressed in a timely and meaningful manner, while respecting confidentiality and "need to know" guidelines.
