HOW WE CARE
Members of the Shady Side Academy community acknowledge and accept five Guiding Principles that serve as fundamental points of guidance for all adults and students living and working together in the school community: Honesty, Kindness, Responsibility, Respect and Safety.
These principles underpin every aspect of school life, on every campus and in every grade, ensuring our students are not only good scholars, but also good people. They are the foundation of a learning community where students feel secure and connected to one another and their teachers.
By instilling the principles of honesty, kindness, responsibility, respect and safety, we ensure our graduates become thriving members of society who contribute their talents to improving communities around them.
