The high school years are filled with new experiences and challenges, and academics play a central role. As your child makes the transition into this new stage of life, there is still much to be learned. Our academic programs have been developed to make learning an engaging and impactful experience.

South Western High School students may select from a wide variety of courses, including more than 20 honors courses, and may qualify for more than 10 advanced placement options. The majority of our graduating students go on to pursue a four-year degree, with recent graduates attending such prestigious institutions as Columbia, Georgetown, Princeton, NYU, Virginia Tech and more.

At SWSD, we are proud of the reputation our high school has developed as one of the best in the state of Pennsylvania for preparing students for continued education and their chosen career paths. Our learners receive all the support and guidance they need to achieve success, both academically as well as in their future endeavors.
