  • Why O'Neal?

    LTC John Samples, O'Neal Parent and Trustee
    Last year I was asked by a friend “Why should I send my children to O’Neal?” The person continued, “We will receive a comparable education and can take the same AP courses at the public school. And, we will save a lot of money as well.” My response was quick and honest. “We can’t afford to NOT send our family to O’Neal. O’Neal does not just prepare students for college, it prepares them for life. O’Neal is not just a school. It is an idea. It is a hope. It is an opportunity. O’Neal tuition is not a cost today. It is an investment in tomorrow.” My friend decided to join the O’Neal community. He thanks me every time he sees me as it has made such a positive impact in his family.
