Forman has been life changing experience for me. As a student with a learning disability before I came to Forman I struggled in school, trying to find where I fit in. I finally found my "niche" both academically and socially after coming to Forman. From day one, I felt like I belonged! The faculty, staff, and students are supportive and give me the confidence to be who I am.

Forman was a transformative experience for me. Forman's small size, quaint campus and close-nit community made warming up to a new place and people almost effortless. Before Forman, I was a struggling student who hated school because it reminded me how unsuccessful I was at something that my friends found easy. Forman, and more specifically my teachers and tutor, showed me that school could be fun and fulfilling. Thanks to my tutor, teachers, and friends, I embraced my learning difference, learned strategies to compensate, and fueled my academic strength (math). On the social and extracurricular side of things, Forman's open and supportive community enabled me to flourish where I once felt alienated. I went from being a shy, self-conscious and overweight kid on day one to an outgoing, confident and healthy man at graduation. I had the honor of serving as a Job Leader, a Dorm Leader, and All-School President. I recommend Forman without hesitation, and I'm happy to answer any questions.
I had an absolutely incredible experience here! Looking back, I didn't realize what an incredible community, family and support system Forman is. In this intimate and personal environment, students are able to explore their interests (and are encouraged to do so!) on the path of ultimately discovering who they are. The daily structure serves as the framework as well as a catalyst for students to discover themselves. Forman truly changed my life, it was a transformational experience.
