Senior Alina Mattson Reflects on her Second Trip to Haiti
I had an opportunity to travel to Haiti with an organization called Work my junior year at Sewickley Academy. What struck me about this organization was their integration into the communities and their promise to make families self-sufficient instead of offering outside solutions that would fix their problems short term. They do this by making sure both parents are in stable jobs and their children are placed in school. While in Haiti, we got to see first hand how Work functions and what they strive to achieve.
Senior Selected as Candidate in the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program

In the 2017 season opener, Sewickley Girls’ Soccer defeated Vincentian Academy 5-1. It took Sewickley a little time to get into a rhythm, but once they did, the goals started flowing. Olivia Ryder had a hat trick with Sarina Sandhu and Elsa Gordon each adding one goal. Lekha Amin assisted each of the last four goals. The defense held strong with impressive freshman debuts from Cameron Lightcap and Emily Szabo to support veteran defenders Lu Gillespie and Catherine Cable and goalkeeper Theresa Wilson. After a long pre-season and a lot of hard work, Sewickley is off to an excellent start. We look forward to our upcoming section games with optimism and excitement.
