SOUTHWESTERN ACADEMY’S 99th SCHOOL YEAR is providing many opportunities in and out of the classroom for our students. Fall Sports have closed, with Soccer and Girls’ Volleyball having challenging, but rewarding seasons of growth. Winter Sports are now kicking off, with both Girls’ and Boys’ Basketball teams. We welcome you to come cheer for our SUN teams on game days! Along with academics & sports, students enjoy educational field trips during the week, as well as volunteering, social & hiking trips on the weekends. Check our Instagram or Facebook page for pictures and updates throughout the year.
