The Borough of Sewickley, commercial and cultural center of the eleven townships and boroughs which comprise
the Quaker Valley School District
, sits 13 miles west of downtown Pittsburgh on the banks of the Ohio River.
The Sewickley Valley provides diversity of housing ranging from $40,000 condominiums to million dollar estates.
There is a vibrant volunteer effort which adds to the richness of living in the community.
The vitality of the Sewickley
area is immensely enriched by the school choices available: the Quaker Valley School
District, one of three "digital" districts in Pennsylvania; the independent Sewickley Academy
and St. James
Parochial School. There are a multitude of pre-schools and learning support through Laughlin Center.
The Sewickley area is also home to Sweetwater Center for the Arts
, the Sewickley YMCA
the Sewickley Public Library
, the Sewickley Civic Garden Council, the Sewickley Valley Historical Society
, the Quaker Valley Recreational Association,
the Fern Hollow Nature Center and the Sewickley Valley Hospital
The Sewickley area has churches of virtually every denomination which offer spiritual and social wellbeing to
residents and non-residents alike.
The Sewickley community is fortunate to have parks and recreation opportunities within the bounds of the school district.
However, with a twenty minute commute to the turnpike, or a twenty minute commute to downtown Pittsburgh, or a twenty
minute commute to Pittsburgh International Airport
, residents can avail themselves of cultural, recreational,
educational and social opportunities within a larger community.
