parent reflections

SALA is the best kept secret in learning and education. The school curriculum has provided our child pathways to academic success and a range of opportunities outside of the classroom while developing long term friendships. We know our son is being led by the most forward-thinking educational talent in this area. The best part? He loves going to school each day!

Great schools cannot exist without a great group of students, teachers, coaches, staff and administration. Phoenix has been blessed to be a part of a positive and nurturing climate that embraced her from the moment she walked in the doors of the school. SALA creates a productive, positive, and rewarding atmosphere in which Phoenix will learn and grow academically and athletically. She is so happy at SALA

The personalized academic learning program and well-balanced soccer program provided by SALA has been a very enriching experience for our son Rishabh. He has thoroughly enjoyed his high school experience as he was able to control the pace, pursue his passion on a deeper level and challenge himself all at the same time. The opportunity to participate in various extracurricular activities along with on-going leadership mentoring from the on-site teachers was an integral part of the learning process. The level of support provided by the SALA faculty during the academic and sports challenges has been amazing. Thanks to the academic discipline and support from his ever-present mentors, he received acceptance to multiple colleges. He is preparing for his college journey in the fall of 2021 with Steven’s Institute of Technology, majoring in Cyber Security and Computer Science, and of course with an academic merit scholarship.

The small school size, chance to do something different, opportunity to travel, and football training worked out wonderfully for our son. The thought process behind the curriculum and schooling was excellent in its conception and the execution. Sam Gough is a wonderful educator and leader. The quality of the training is better than most club teams, and the time the program gave back to our son was priceless.

I measure my son’s educational experience in part by his eagerness to attend school. It’s mid-August, and he keeps telling me how excited he is for school to begin again. That never happened at his previous schools. Thanks, SALA, for everything you do that makes this such a great place to learn and grow.
