Clayton Academy services Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) students in grades 6–12, with a current seat capacity for 125 high school students and 125 middle school students.
Clayton is proud to be a member of the "Pittsburgh Promise" program, which offers financial assistance to students who are meeting certain attendance, academic, and behavioral requirements set forth by the district for postsecondary educational plans. Each "Promise Ready” student will receive up to $10,000 a year to assist with his or her college plans.
Students begin and end each day with "Community Assemblies." During this time, the community is able to share pertinent information about the school and upcoming events/dates. Also during assemblies, students take ownership of various behaviors—both positive and negative—and receive feedback from their peers on desired behaviors.
