Meet the Advancement Team

The Advancement Team works to ‘advance’ every aspect of Sewickley Academy. From sharing the great work our students and faculty do with the media and in our alumni magazine, to working with alumni on planning a great reunion weekend, to hosting a day devoted to visiting grandparents and special friends, to helping our students explore what it means to be philanthropic in the 21st century, we are here to support and promote all that Sewickley Academy is and all that we aspire to be.

Our team is involved in alumni engagement, fundraising, marketing, and communications for Sewickley Academy.
