I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to Salem Academy’s 245th academic year. My daughter, Kadie Hicks, entered her freshman year at the Academy in 2013 where academic excellence in a close-knit community of teachers and staff is still the norm. What I appreciate about Salem is it continues to offer small classes and individual attention emphasizing the development of self discipline, self confidence and self esteem. Salem provides opportunities for service and leadership in the classroom, through student organizations, and activities. Our daughters, upon graduation, are prepared to be successful wherever their life journey takes them.
The Parents’ Association was created with the goal of enhancing the Salem experience for your daughters and fostering a sense of community among parents. I am honored to head up this fabulous group of families and am looking forward to meeting everyone. This year our association plans on supporting the Academy in a few different areas: by providing hospitality to faculty and staff each month, celebrating student and staff birthdays once a month and a couple of other surprises along the way.
