 A Message from Sarah Donovan, Director of The Extended Educational Programs

The excitement and emotions of graduation have wrapped around us at The First Academy. It is a time of reflection and nostalgia of taking the great leap into college. As our seniors at The Classical School, The First Hope, and The First Academy’s 5 Day program take the walk toward their future on Friday night, I am reminded of what inspired me at that age. My dad often wrote quotes inside special books or cards during milestone moments of my life. Here is the quote he wrote to me as I began my journey to college, “The journey between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place.” To the graduating seniors: enjoy the dance, be strong Christian leaders as you enter these new journeys, and take advantage of opportunities to travel and experience this beautiful world. To all our Extended Educational Program families, please join me in praying for the Class of 2018. We are so proud of you all!
