The high school and junior high are both members of the Heart of America League which supports and promotes academic and athletic programs for the ten member school districts.

The City of Sedgwick was incorporated in 1872. Sedgwick is located in the southern part of Harvey County just 15 minutes north of Wichita - close to the metroplex, but far enough away to hold a distinctive country charm. The community itself is home to a population of 1600 residents. Although the city is barely one mile square, the district is 42 square miles.
Community churches include: Sedgwick United Methodist Church, Plymouth Congregational Church, Sedgwick Mennonite Church, First Christian Church, and Sacred Heart Catholic Church of Halstead.
Quality care for citizens needing assistance is provided by Diversicare Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center and Wickridge apartments, which provides housing for those on a fixed income. Sundance - Sedgwick, a senior housing complex, is also available. Families looking to move to Sedgwick have newly built home choices through the Reserve or the Hilands on the east side of Sedgwick.
The Sedgwick Recreation Commission provides extra-curricular activities as well as operating a community exercise and wellness center.
