Professional Development

Shady Side Academy strongly believes in providing professional development opportunities to its faculty and administrators. Each year, more than $350,000 is provided to support ongoing training and inspiration to our educators. A significant portion of this funding is made possible through the generous support of the Paul G. Benedum Teaching Endowment. The Scheetz and Faculty Graduate Study endowments also help to fund these programs. Additionally, on an annual basis, the Wimmer Family Foundation supports directed study efforts. Faculty and administrators are encouraged to take advantage of these rewarding programs.
