It sits in a prime location that provides teachers and students the opportunity to partner with the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, The National Aviary, Carnegie Science Center, Community College of Allegheny County, Carnegie Library, The Pittsburgh Steelers Football, and the Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball teams. Our school emphasizes academic achievement, structure, discipline, character development, technology proficiency, and community responsibility. We embrace the Community of Caring Core Values of Responsibility, Respect, Trust, Care, and Family. Our children will behave appropriately, respect cultural diversity, and will develop self-discipline, self-confidence, and self-reliance.

Parents will support the philosophy and practices of the Traditional Academy, and will be engaged as partners in the education of their children.

Collaborative efforts of educators, parents and the community help us to achieve our goals for all our students.
