Our son is a senior at STM. He has achieved everything we could have possibly imagined since our very first visit to the campus almost 4 years ago. Yes, we are happy. But more importantly, he is happy. Of the 7 colleges he has applied to, he has been accepted to 4 and is wait listed for another. He has received substantial merit scholarships to each accepting college. We believe this is a direct reflection of the effort he has put forth and the guidance he has received. Go Chancellors

Excellent school - they take their motto very seriously and your son will succeed ... As the parent of a graduate and a sophomore I can honestly say they do an amazing job with young men.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Schools for the artistically gifted child are in short supply.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
