Corpus Mens Anima
South Hills Catholic Academy (SHCA) is first and foremost a Catholic school. Our children pray throughout the school day, experience the traditional observances of Catholicism, and service to others is integral to our program.
Our goal at SHCA is to deliver excellence in Traditional Catholic education for 21st century learners. It is our mission to focus on the total development of each child....body, mind, and soul (corpus mens anima). That spirit of education is in our hearts, and it’s played out in our school every day. Here, every student is valued. Learning is celebrated. Faith is strengthened. And we provide the challenging, advanced education that our children need, with Jesus Christ at the center of all that we teach.
SHCA offers a unique educational and spiritual formation opportunity for the students in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. The Academy 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.
