Sharing a Statement from the International Boys' Schools Coalition

Alfred F. Dugan III

Dear Princeton Academy Community,

The context of the world in which we live requires that we nurture our boys’ spirit and character so that they grow to become good men who are whole and not hollow, are emotionally and physically healthy, live with positive purpose, use their gifts for good, improve the lives of others, develop healthy relationships, care for and treat others with respect (especially women) and stand up for what is right in all situations at all stages of life. In a K-8, all-boys environment we have the opportunity to foundationally and constructively influence the formation of a boy’s character, which is directly linked to the man he will become. Amidst all of this, we embrace the joy of boyhood and want our boys to live fulfilling lives, able to love others and themselves.

In short, our mission is a cause. Our school leaders and educators are committed to focusing 100% on what boys need and 100% on what our world needs. We hear the clarion call and stand ready and dedicated to bringing out the best in each boy so that he can be his best self.

Princeton Academy is proud to be a member of the International Boys’ School Coalition (IBSC). Recently, the IBSC Board of Trustees issued a statement that I would like to share with our community titled IBSC Supports Boys and Boys’ Schools. Please take a moment to read this important message and know that your school, Princeton Academy, stands in support.

Inspired by our boys,
Rik
