Shady Side Academy understands that how we educate students equips them to thrive in college and in life. Because “how” widens perspectives, reveals hidden talents, cultivates character and elevates expectations – at every level and for every child. Because “how” matters.
Across 189 acres and 四个校区, SSA students have plenty of room to 玩, learn, create and compete. Each campus is designed to support how we educate children in each life stage. The transition from one campus to the next broadens their experience, offering more choices and independence at each level. Because "how" matters.
Shady Side Academy is a nationally respected private school in Pittsburgh for boys and girls in grades pre-kindergarten through 12, with an optional boarding experience in high school. Four schools with extraordinary resources, teachers who actively mentor, a forward-thinking curriculum, a diverse and inclusive community, and a legacy of alumni accomplishments all inspire Shady Side students to high achievement in academics, the arts and athletics, and to meaningful ambitions in life.
