Greetings from Shady Side Academy!
For more than 125 years, Shady Side Academy has been a leader in independent school education in Western Pennsylvania. At each of our three campuses, girls and boys have the opportunity to explore new interests in a safe, supportive atmosphere, to engage with educators and staff who are leaders in their fields and are committed to their individual needs, and to excel in the classroom, in the arts and in athletics. We firmly believe in a balanced approach to education; one which prepares students for college and gives them confidence to approach this ever-changing world.
Shady Side hosts a number of events for prospective families during the year. Please call or email to schedule a personal tour, interview and your child’s visit day. We will also hold Admissions Open Houses each year in the fall, winter and spring. There are multiple ways to get to know the school; we encourage every family to visit with us in a way that is most comfortable for them.
We look forward to meeting you,
The Admissions Team
Katie, Joyce, Maggie, Becci, Matt, Vanessa and Bob
