    "We have two small boys at the Shady Side Academy Junior School. It is a dynamic place with tremendous academic, emotional and faculties resources that make it really unique in Pittsburgh. We explored, in depth, most of the elementary choices, private, public and and parochial, in Pittsburgh's East End. Ultimately, we choose Shady Side because of the School's focus on academic readiness. In a highly competitive, global economy this just so critical and absolutely worth the investment. Several years into our SSA experience, the academic piece has exceeded our expectations, but we've also loved the School's character education program, The Shady Side Way, proximity to Frick Park and amazingly caring faculty and support staff. Our older child has built a truly meaningful, high-impact relationship with the School's amazing learning specialist. Her involvement in our child's life has been a game changer for him."

    "Sending our son to Shady Side Academy has been the best decision we ever made! He is engaged every day in academics, clubs and athletics that are thought provoking and challenging. He has met students for the first time who like he, have a natural curiosity about the world and a desire to learn! The staff are true mentors, not just there to teach a lesson. The relationships that are formed between student and teacher are truly meaningful. We are so thankful for all that SSA does for our son!"

    "As a parent of two students who went all the way through Shady Side, and are now highly successful college students at top universities, I could not be more grateful for the opportunities offered and support given to my children. They learned to be self-advocates, great communicators, organized and adventurous. They are living productive lives and when they hit a bump in the road they use the resources available to them wisely. The academic program and teachers are tremendous. I will say that at the Senior School they did have to make some choices as there are so many options and at times that was challenging but the choices were plentiful and that was exciting."

    "Shady Side prepared me for college and made several courses, such as English and History, very easy once I was in college. Growing up in a middle class family, financial aid provided by Shady Side allowed me to be part of a learning experience that I would not have received at public school. The school is very competitive and drives you to be successful in the future."
