Grade 6 Student Honored by Johns Hopkins for Academic Excellence
Grade 6 student Daniel was honored as one of the brightest young students in the world at a recent awards ceremony sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CYT). A participant in the CTY Talent Search, Daniel scored exceptionally high on a rigorous, above-grade-level test.
The Academy opened its doors on the cusp of the Great Depression and the school was not immune to the national financial crisis. In 1933, Alexander C. Tener, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Sewickley Academy at that time, wrote to all of the trustees asking each to underwrite $300 of the operating deficit for that year, so they could close the books and keep the school open.
