Having been prepared for college at Oak Ridge Institute, I take pleasure in testifying to the thorough, all-around work of that institution… she stands abreast of any in the State or South.

Mr. George Stephens, Class of 1891

Enclosed is a gift for the academy in appreciation for the care and attention that was given our daughter, Mary Claire. Oak Ridge’s mission and philosophy did prepare Mary Claire for college and life. She will always remember the school as “home” and the faculty and staff as “family.”

I noticed a great change in David’s attitude and behavior over this past Easter break. Thank you.


I wanted to extend my compliments to you as the commandant. Your efforts and duty are way and beyond the call of duty. Your job is the most difficult in the academy. I think your wisdom is unsurpassed as to the cadets and their psychological potential reality in this difficult world. Please forward this message to the new president. If you don’t, I will.


I just wanted to write you a short email to let you know how wonderful your staff and faculty have been. They have all been so encouraging to our children. Winslow and Joshua are really enjoying the year so far and are so proud to be attending ORMA. It has been a different experience for them both, and it could not have gone better. We are looking forward to a great school year. We feel we made a good choice in enrolling them.

The school is doing a great job, and I want to voice my appreciation especially to you for having an open door policy and hearing my concerns. You’ve not only heard my concerns, you’ve addressed them and made changes accordingly. This is why my son attends ORMA and will do so until graduation. Keep up the good work and again, thank you.
