REFLECTIONS FROM APPLICANTS . . .
I loved it, the students were great, the faculty was great, the lip sync was the best. Everyone was friendly and I learned a lot about the school and student life. I hope to be a student there next year.
It was better than I imagined! It's nothing like any school I've ever seen. I cannot believe how close and nice the people are and how secure and comfortable everyone seems with each other.
Scholar Search Weekend was fantastic! The campus was beautiful, everyone was friendly, and it was a great time!
REFLECTIONS FROM PARENTS . . .
We, as a family, ended the weekend feeling very excited for our daughter's future and all that Annie Wright has to offer a young woman getting ready to prepare for college and her life as an independent young lady.
The merit scholarship would be nice, but my true motivation was getting my child into an environment where she can be successful and be exposed to all the possibilities that life has to offer. I feel in my heart that Annie Wright is a giant step in the right direction.
Annie Wright is a beautiful school. What makes it shine above the rest is that all of the faculty, staff and students truly care about each other. Tuition is expensive, but worth every penny.
Our daughter really enjoyed the weekend. She enjoyed making good friends. She also enjoyed the mix of academic and non-academic activities a great deal. It truly represented the balance between academic rigor and the high-energy fun that Annie Wright promotes. We are thrilled about the opportunity to have our daughter be a part of Annie Wright.
We believe in Annie Wright and everything they have to offer students. The education is priceless and sets a standard above all others. Children are happy and happy children love to learn.
