The Sewickley Academy College Preparatory Middle School focuses on each child by creating a caring and understanding space to encourage physical growth, social/emotional maturity, and abstract thinking. Middle school years mark the transition from the dependence of childhood and the independence of young adulthood.
In the Middle School, students experience greater freedom and expanded options in an environment that is structured but flexible, where expectations are clearly set forth. Responsible citizenship is stressed, requiring respect for the feelings, opinions, and property of others and for the valued traditions of the school.
Wisdom and dedication coupled with an understanding of the unique social and emotional needs of pre-adolescents characterize our Middle School faculty. Teachers combine expertise, energy, empathy, guidance and a love of learning, often with a zany sense of humor, to teach Middle School students effectively.
Thanks to a generous grant from SA's Home and School Association, faculty were issued iPad Airs, devices that will allow teachers to explore ways that mobile technology can enhance teaching and learning in the classroom and beyond.
During the Day of Service, the SA community partners with organizations on service projects that seek to make a positive impact on issues regarding the environment, social justice, hunger, and poverty.
