I’m a parent of two daughters who’s been at Sewickley Academy for over 5 years. If you’re looking for a great school, give Sewickley Academy a chance. Each morning when I walk our children to the bus stop, we feel so lucky to have our girls attend Sewickley Academy. Given the wonderful teachers, staff, and curriculum they have there! I love how they treat and value everyone as if we’re family. My husband and I wanted a school that would prepare them for college as well as safe environment. Sewickley Academy was the best decision we ever made! I can’t tell you how much we love this school! If you’re looking for a excellent school with a great support system designed to prepare your child with the best education, definitely give Sewickley Academy a try. You won’t be disappointed! I pray every student could experience this wonderful education. Sewickley Academy School is amazing!

I transferred to Sewickley Academy for high school. I have to say, the education I have received has been exceptional. However, the environment of the school is kind of toxic and it has been really hard to have good self confidence. My class is particularly bad, as we are all extremely bright and rather competitive with one another. This may just be what comes with going to a prestigious private school, but it has been somewhat difficult to deal with over the years. I have had some wonderful opportunities here, though. I've been able to be involved in activities and events that I never imagined I would be capable of doing, particularly all at once. Everyone here is very, very busy. We are all involved in SO many activities, I'm surprised everyone here always says "yes" to additional things.
When you walk on the impressive campus, it's hard to believe it's real! The pictures on the website of people studying and playing on the green and library aren't posed; really just a fantastic, happy leavening environment. The learning is rigorous and competitive, but the students wear their accomplishments like a badge of honor because they are hard earned. One would think a no-cut policy in sports would make for poor teams, but check out all of the 2016 and 2017 state championships! Just proves that Sewickley gives everyone an opportunity and, in doing so, we all suceed.
