Senior: I've attended SCPA from grades 4-12. I've never felt out of place because everybody is so accepting! I've found both my arts and academics teachers supportive of my growth, and as a visual arts major, I've had many great opportunities to meet and receive feedback from successful artists. My instructors have provided me advanced professional preparation for college and a career in the arts. One thing I wish could be different is more support for collaboration between majors. I'm friends with many drama majors and we've had discussions about doing performance art together, but did not follow through because it is difficult to find the time and resources to do something like that without a starting platform like our school.

Parent: The staff and teachers care about the boys and it is clear that they want to help their students be successful. The campus is pretty, the dorm rooms are basic – it isn’t the fanciest boarding school, but they get the job done. Most of the teachers live on campus, which helps when anyone needs special attention. They have a variety of class options, particularly around their “intensive” sessions that last 2 weeks. There are a lot of activities to keep students occupied. My son has been there for 2.5 years and has grown tremendously. His grades are up and he is in a club and sports. Small class sizes and the availability of the teachers keeps him on track. The teachers encourage him and applaud his successes; they will get on his case if he needs that too. He was failing in the public school and I couldn’t help him anymore. GRA staff and teachers stepped in and started him on a positive path.
