When boys make the transition from their homes to a Preparatory School, it sometimes takes a little while for them to become adjusted. This is only natural and normal. They may become a little homesick. This, too, is natural and normal. It has been found through long experience by many good schools that it usually takes six weeks for boys to become adjusted to their new life and work in order that they may do excellent work. During this period of time, it is always best if there is little or no visiting by parents or friends. Boys like to stand on their own feet. It is true that a good letter or two each week is excellent. Telephone calls should be kept to a minimum. A letter is better. There are no objections to small boxes of fruit and cookies occasionally from home. It is rare for many boys to develop well and do their best unless given this period of six weeks to become adjusted to their new surroundings.

We believe that Your Boy is your greatest business, and that your paramount desire is to see him grow up great and good, and straight and strong. Our aim is to help you realize that desire, Our business is the molding of character - the making of men - the greatest business in the world. We believe that we can help you. We believe that we can help your boy. We aim to develop in our boys a natural fondness and preference for the correct things in life, In short, we aim to teach each boy How to Learn, How to Labor and How to Live.
