PRESIDENT'S WELCOME



“When I was a young parent I used to dream about the great things my children might someday accomplish. I then set out to find a school that not only had a strong academic curriculum but also a school that placed emphasis on social skills, manners, fitness for life, and most importantly, leadership development.

 

My most precious possessions would then be ready for the competition and challenges of life. Unfortunately, years ago this type of opportunity did not exist."

 

Dr. Frederick G. Smith - President, Founder
