A couple of years ago I went the grand opening of the Applied Scholastics International campus in Spanish Lake, which is a town within greater St. Louis, MO.
What a beautiful area this is, with some of the nicest features of mid-West countryside. Rolling hills, a view of the Mississippi River, clean air, green.
And the campus itself is lovely. They did such a nice job renovating it. It was originally a Catholic convent for nuns. It has retained its classic beauty, but has been brought up to the 21st Century in terms of facilities.
Applied Scholastics uses the study technology developed by Mr. L. Ron Hubbard.
No matter how beautiful the campus is, if they didn't have an effective means of training teachers, mentors and parents and tutoring children and youth, it wouldn't make any difference.
But the do.
And that's a great thing for all of us!
