Country Day School Merger

Shady Side Academy is proud to announce its official merger with Fox Chapel Country Day School, effective in 2017. Now known as Shady Side Academy Country Day School in Fox Chapel, the school becomes SSA's second elementary campus, offering families in the north suburbs access to the region's best PK-12 education at an earlier age!

Families now have a choice between two Shady Side Academy PK-5 campuses: the Junior School in Point Breeze and Country Day School in Fox Chapel. While each offers a unique experience, both are alive with engaged and curious learners who are prepared to succeed at SSA Middle School.

From the moment you enter Country Day School, its motto, "Childhood is a journey, not a race," is unmistakable. The unhurried, nurturing environment fosters happy and creative students who come to school ready to discover and learn each day. Visit the Country Day School website to learn more.
