Why Roycemore?

Roycemore is so extraordinary that we often find ourselves pausing to describe it, because words are not enough. It is a community and a family and over generations of time, the true specialness of this place maintains. Students are known for their strengths and challenges. Teachers and faculty are invested so much that we spend days and nights making sure that students and families have everything they need to be successful. Investment is an understatement. Our faculty are incredible. We live and breathe Roycemore and for all of the energy we put out for our kids, we receive it back in spades. Our students are prepared for college in every sense of the word and they are loved and cared for. They are allowed to grow up as well-rounded and happy human beings, who know themselves and know how to navigate in a complex world. I am proud to be a member of the Roycemore community. So very proud.
