College is a part of the Alma del Mar culture from a scholar’s first day of kindergarten. The kindergarteners who enrolled in the fall of 2018 are known as the Alma del Mar Class of 2035 (that is the year in which they will graduate from college). Every classroom is named after the teacher’s Alma Mater. Our third graders are in Smith College or Fitchburg State University meanwhile our seventh graders are in Keene State or Wesleyan.
“Alma students and their teacher are incredibly impressive. The students are attentive listeners who track the person speaking. They are enthusiastic and respectful. When I greeted them they gave a firm handshake and maintained good eye contact. I hope that in a few years we will welcome some of them back when they enroll as college students here.” – Professor David Stolow, Boston University
