Preschool and Lower School Week of Service

Servant Leadership is embedded in our culture in every way. Of course, thanks to COVID-19, our weeks of service might look a little different this year, but the heart behind them remains the same. We want to teach our kids empathy, compassion, and how serving others is a way of life. The students prepared bags for a variety of local agencies here in town – PAWS, Easter Seals, Brookside Glen, Ronald McDonald House, and Open Door. They also made goody bags for the Soldier Recovery Unit at Ft. Benning. COVID-19 […]

Thank you, Teachers!

We’ve been in school for seven weeks now and we felt it was time to share the gratitude our parents feel for our teachers!

So the least we can do is to THANK THEM! Because they are pouring themselves out on behalf of our children and we are so incredibly grateful for the work they do every day.  So below are […]

College Counseling Goes Virtual

College counseling, just like so many other aspects of school, might look different this fall in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn’t mean our counselors are any less committed to seeing our families through the process. In addition to “hosting” college admissions counselors who are meeting with our students via zoom on a weekly basis, the college office is committed to being there for parents, too. So if you are a parent of a member of the Class of 2021, we hope you will take advantage of the […]

Remembering 9/11

Good morning students,  What is still very real to any adult in your life, you know 9/11/2001 only as part of your history, and it’s an important part. Ask any adult where they were that day and they will be able to vividly remember where they were when the news of the terrorist attacks started breaking. For me, I was entering my third year in the U.S.A. as an international student, playing tennis at CSU. I remember walking into my first class of the day with a few students who were […]

Upper School Students Doing Great Things!

It is our privilege to highlight four Upper School students for their work outside of school and in our community.

With the help of a local ministry, the food is put into to-go boxes and delivered to the homeless, elderly, and needy. In […]
