The school is accepting enrollment applications for the 2011-12 school year now.
O’Neal continues to develop academic excellence among its students. O’Neal’s college counseling program enables 100 percent of its graduates to be accepted to colleges and universities across the nation.
O’Neal’s Upper School welcomed a new Upper School Director, Richard Catania this year. Catania brings with him a successful foreign exchange program that is in operation with O’Neal Upper School students participating in summer exchange and students from Spain and Germany enrolled in O’Neal. Plans for expansion for foreign exchange opportunities are in the works for next year.
“I want our students to learn to travel as an explorer, not as a tourist,” says Catania. “When you immerse yourself in another way of life, you learn a new way of thinking.”
The new Pre-K for three-year-olds program continues to be a great success full of fun learning and satisfaction from parents, students and teachers.
“Our son, Max, loves going to preschool at O’Neal,” comments O’Neal parent, Susan Pashley. “I know that Max is in great hands with teachers and staff that really care about him and his development.”
O’Neal parent and Parents’ Association President Lindsay Blackwood, has a child graduating from O’Neal this year as well as two children in the Lower School.
“O’Neal is a community,” says Blackwood. “You feel welcome as a parent. It’s nice to see your children happy and wanting to go to school everyday. You get to know all of the teachers really well. O’Neal provides my children with a solid foundation by attending to the whole person and not just academics.”
