Riverdale and Calhoun

I visited Calhoun today with Mr. Imbelli to see Brad '10 in his senior year.  Brad is the only Saint David's alum in recent memory to attend Calhoun.  He has enjoyed his time there immensely.  After adjusting to a  dramatic philosophical change in culture, Brad has flourished. 

A recent highlight Brad shared was a semester he spent at The Island School in the Bahamas, where he engaged in a science focused process of inquiry around discovering sustainable solutions to real world problems and where he participated in project-based outreach programs with the peoples of Eleuthera.

Brad is looking at small liberal arts colleges in the Northeast.

When I got back to school, Axel '13 dropped by to touch base.  At Riverdale now, Axel has made a smooth transition to high school; he loves the campus freedom and seems to be enjoying his studies.  After waiving a sport this fall, he's now looking forward to winter prep for spring lacrosse. It was great to see both boys -- one just finishing up and one just starting his secondary school experiences.
