Ask many people what makes for a life well lived, and the answer will likely include some combination of an enduring passion for something; a commitment to physical health and mental wellness; work-life balance; strong relationships; caring for others; and a visceral sense of right and wrong.
However, cultivating and nurturing that kind of well-roundedness in young people is easier said than done. There are schools that specialize in athletic excellence and others that focus on academic greatness. Some even profess to instill higher values in their students.
But finding a school that offers all three of these spheres while not diminishing any one of them? That can be a tall order. All too often, students, and their parents, are forced to choose between them.
Fortunately, it’s a choice that Edge School families never have to make. We are certainly acknowledged for fully developing our students’ athletic potential, but don’t be fooled by the hype and the trophies. The real reason we get up every morning is to leverage our students’ passion for sport into an equally compelling passion for learning, leading and personal integrity. Our balanced approach to developing the pursuit of personal excellence in academics, athletics, and character is how we create well-rounded individuals who are uncommonly equipped to succeed in all aspects of their lives.
To ensure that this happens, we have cultivated a truly one-of-a-kind school. One where teachers, coaches and support staff are highly accomplished in, and fully dedicated to, their chosen fields. However, they are even more devoted to the holistic development of each student. Our small class sizes, access to best-in-class facilities, and unique collegiate feel provide the atmosphere and individual attention so vital to unlocking the full potential of every Edge student—no matter what path they choose to take in life.
We wholeheartedly believe that our student-athletes should strive for their ‘personal best’ every day, in all aspects of their lives. As students, athletes and community members now, and as partners, parents, business leaders, sports figures, and global citizens in the future. As a result, Edge graduates are primed to lead vital, fulfilling lives. They are ready to make the world a better place by being the best humans they can be.
