Former Glenholme Students Are Finding Success. Here's what a Glenholme mom had to say about her son's recent achievements...
"Our son just graduated from a regular boarding school that is actually awarded the top in the state. He is going to Hofstra in September, where he was accepted into their PALS program which provides additional support. And this summer he is working for ID TECH camp teaching robotics to kids- they are giving him a trial because they usually don't take college freshman but he has a lot of teaching experience. So he has accomplished a lot and we are very grateful!
Don't know where we all would be if we hadn't found Glenholme! Thank you!"
