Learning to Stand Up

Painted above the Fuller Hall stage is a motto that the legendary Academy Latin teacher Graham Newell always pointed to as the secret to our school's success: Semper Discens (Always Learning).

MacDuffie is a for-profit school, and I was chair of the Visiting Committee tasked with evaluating whether the school has met the standards of accreditation as set out by the Commission of Independent Schools of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). If MacDuffie passed all standards, it would be the first school of its kind to be accredited by NEASC.
