FROM AN EDGE SOCCER ALUMNI
“Edge taught me discipline in both sport and academics, which prepared me for life after high school. Hard work pays off in each of these areas, but also transfers into everyday life and situations. The biggest thing I gained from attending Edge is confidence in myself.”- Kiercy
