Overview and timeline

  • Shady Side Academy was initially founded as a boys' day school in 1883 on Aiken Avenue in the East End neighborhood of Shadyside, and in 1921 the Senior School was established at its current suburban campus in Fox Chapel. This move also resulted in Shady Side becoming a boarding school, first with a traditional seven-day program and later, with the five-day program that the school currently offers.
  • A later merger in the early 1940s with another local boy's private school, The Arnold School, resulted in the creation of another new campus: a Junior School, located in Pittsburgh's Point Breeze and serving kindergarten through fifth grade students.
  • In the 1950s, the Academy purchased an estate less than a mile from the Senior School campus, creating a middle school for grades six through eight.
  • In 1973, the Senior School embraced the concept of co-education and began admitting female students for the first time. The Junior and Middle Schools followed suit in the 1990s, with the first K-12 "Lifer" female students graduating in 2007.
  • Opening in the fall of 2007, a pre-kindergarten has been added to Shady Side. It is located on the Junior School campus. The total enrollment across all grades fluctuates but is generally slightly under 1000 students.
  • Shady Side Academy serves as a member school of the Chewonki Foundation's Maine Coast Semester[2]

'Green' campuses

Shady Side Academy has made some recent strides to implement "green," or environmentally-friendly, changes to its campuses. The 2006 renovation of Rowe Hall, the main academic building, put into use a number of "green" concepts. The $6.8 million renovation of this primary Senior School facility emphasized environmentally-friendly approaches, from glass that allows more light into classrooms to rainwater collected in an underground cistern that is then used to flush toilets and urinals.


'It's something these kids can really sink their teeth into,' said Marc Mondor, principal of evolveEA, a green consulting firm in the Friendship neighborhood of Pittsburgh. 'It's saving the earth, but it's also giving them a better environment.'"[3]

In 1924, Shady Side Academy was a founding member of the Interstate Prep School League (IPSL) -- a league composed of Mid-West preparatory schools. In 1993, the school joined the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL), which is the league that local public schools compete in and is part of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA). The switch allowed them to compete for regional and state championships against local schools. Since the switch, Shady Side has won four state championships: two in boys' basketball, one in boys' swimming, and one in boys' tennis, along with numerous WPIAL championships, in several sports including tennis, soccer, and golf. The Shady Side Girls' Tennis and Field Hockey Teams won the 2006 WPIAL Championship titles for AAA and AA, respectively. The Girls' Tennis team went on to place second in the PIAA Championships. Several teams do not compete in the WPIAL. The ice hockey teams compete at the Division 1 Prep Level. The boys' team is a member of the Midwest Prep Hockey League and the girls' team competes in the Women’s Ice Hockey League of the Mid- Atlantic.

Boarding Program

Shady Side Academy has a long-standing boarding program. Bayard House (1924), Croft House (1931), Ellsworth House(1922) (now called Hunt Hall), and Morewood House (1922)--all at one time or another residence halls on the Senior School campus--have served as home to the many generations of Shady Side students since the school moved to suburban Fox Chapel from the city neighborhood of Shadyside in the early 1920s. At times nearly 200 students boarded at Shady Side, some as 7-day boarders, some as 5-day boarders, some as Senior Schoolers, some as Middle Schoolers. Since the 1960s, Shady Side has hosted 5-day Senior School (Grades 9 through 12) boarding exclusively, and is one of only six schools nationwide to offer such an option for its students. With all boarding students going home for the weekend each week, boarders almost always come from the three-state area of eastern Ohio, western Pennsylvania, and northern West Virginia. Today, two residence halls are in active use at Shady Side: male students board in Croft House and female students reside in Morewood House.
