Forming Body, Mind, and Soul

A new independent Catholic elementary school will open for enrollment in January 2021 for the 2021-22 school year.

The South Hills Catholic Academy will be an independent Catholic school created and funded by a group of lay people that was born out of, and is aligned to, On Mission for The Church Alive, the Diocese of Pittsburgh’s planning initiative to bring about a more vibrant Church.

The new Academy will offer a unique educational and spiritual formation opportunity in Pittsburgh’s South Hills. The Academy, although independent of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, is endorsed by Bishop David Zubik, and is founded on three key pillars that make it distinctive and yet complementary to the Diocesan elementary schools:

  • Ensuring that a Catholic education is accessible to all children in the southern region of Pittsburgh, especially the growing immigrant population and those of modest means.
  • Preparing students for higher education through a curriculum built on the foundation of a Traditional education.
  • Providing a rich spiritual formation with a vibrant sacramental and devotional life at the center of the school mission.

The Academy will be a financially independent non-profit organization, governed by a board of directors, and supported by South Hills benefactors and modest tuition revenues. The school will serve students from Preschool through Eighth Grade.

The Academy is working with the Institute for Liberal Catholic Education, a nationally recognized organization, to develop the Traditional curriculum and operating model for the school. Additional plans related to the opening will be shared over the coming months.
