In Their Words: The Value of Austin Prep

In June, the parent of a graduating senior and entering freshman sent me an email that I saved, because it captured better than I ever could the value of Austin Prep.  I’d like to share an excerpt with you.

"So again, thanks for all you are doing to advance Austin Prep and the community.  [My son] is a better student, a better athlete and most importantly, a better human being for having attended Austin Prep.  Reflecting on it, I would make that investment a thousand times without batting an eye – that’s how strongly I feel about his experience at Austin Prep.  We look forward to a similar experience for [his younger brother].”

 As we begin the 2018-2019 school, I’m as enthusiastic and optimistic as ever about the future of Austin Prep and will continue to work energetically to enrich the legacy entrusted to me as head of school.  I look forward to seeing you around campus.
