Goal 2: Community and Communication


Because relationships are at the center of the Sewickley Academy experience, the school is committed to using a range of communications tools to encourage and allow each member of our community to interact in ways that are meaningful and helpful to them in building and strengthening those relationships. We understand that good communications can help build a strong community, and we know that the best communications are not “one way” but involve opportunities for dialogue and diverse interaction.

Further, because we are a one campus school, we seek to take greater advantage of the opportunities available for inter-divisional interactions that will contribute to a greater sense of connections PreK-12. Activities that involve different aged students, as well as faculty, parents, and alumni, serve to reinforce the importance of community as a core value of the school and the importance of the relationships and connections among us that can make the school such a special place.
