    "I have three children that currently attend Shady Side Academy, each of which transitioned from O'Hara Elementary School to the SSA Middle School in 6th grade. My experience with the school has been excellent. The quality of the faculty, staff, students, coaches and facilities are top notch. I am most impressed by the faculty advisor program. The advisor: advisee ratio is small, and the advisors connect with each of the students and help them navigate all aspects of the school. The advisors work with the faculty and pay attention to how each of the students is doing. In addition, the faculty members issue episodic interim reports to the advisor, parents and the student if the student is struggling or experiencing success. This early warning systems has proven successful for my children. I also find the Shady Side community to be a very inclusive environment that engages all types of students, regardless of their background or interests."

    "My daughter transferred to Shady Side Academy in 10th grade and is now a senior. Truly, this was a great choice! She has grown tremendously academically and socially. The campus is gorgeous, and classroom, arts, and sports facilities are amazing. College counseling and support has been fantastic, and SSA has a record of placing students at top-tier universities. Both five and seven day boarding are available."

    "I love Shady Side Academy because it is a diverse school that pushes you to your limit. One of the unique things about Shady Side Academy is that they have a college counseling center that helps and prepares students to get ready for college."

    "I attended a small middle school. I knew that I wanted to attend a high school that would prepare me for college, without giving up the feel and intimacy of a smaller School. Shady Side Academy is just that place. The large campus is made to feel like home and the rigorous academics ensure that I'll have a great selection of colleges to choose from."
