To support the mission of Sewickley Academy, Home and School hold four major fundraisers each year.
                                                                     
Through these volunteer efforts, our funds are used to enhance student life and support faculty, staff, and administration of Sewickley Academy:

Grants for Innovative Frameworks in Teaching (G.I.F.T.): Funded through the generosity of the Sewickley Academy Home & School Association, the Grants for Innovative Frameworks in Teaching are designed to allow teachers to seize unexpected opportunities for innovative, interdisciplinary projects, especially where collaboration and experiential learning are the focus. 

Applications for G.I.F.T. grants are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the school year. Teachers are to consult with and receive support from both their department chair and division head prior to submitting their application (accessible by SA faculty/staff only). All ideas are welcome and encouraged.

Recent G.I.F.T.s have included participation in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), City of Asylum readings and workshops series, a Campus Cultural Art pilot program, and an educational partnership with Communitopia regarding climate change.

The Parent Programming Chair actively participates with Youth Connect, a group of concerned adults from a variety of schools and organizations in the Sewickley area who are working to provide the information, resources, and support our young people need to avoid risky behaviors and enjoy their teen years. Youth Connect conducts a series of community forums where speakers are brought in to address “non-academic” issues that children and parents face throughout the school-age years.
