In a recent survey, we asked parents to reflect on which of their student’s accomplishments from the previous academic year made them the most proud. Of the 96 parents who responded, 62 percent indicated academics, 18 percent responded that their student was more independent, 9 percent were proud of their student’s time-management skills, and 7 percent indicated that they could not choose just one area because their student excelled in many. Several parents commented that that they were impressed by their student’s personal growth and healthy balance of academics, employment, community service, and social life.
