What Callanwolde Scholarship Recipients are Saying

Hava, scholarship recipient, and her mother Michelle.

Receiving this scholarship meant that Hava could an opportunity she would not have had otherwise. It has allowed her to broaden her horizons and develop meaningful relationships especially with her teacher, Jerlyann.

The relationships that are formed with the teachers is so special. I have never found a place where a child’s natural talents were encouraged like they are at Callanwolde. The teachers take such joy and wonder seeing their students grow. Callanwolde is a very nurturing place. The instructors care. That’s why this is such a special place to our family.


Cairo, scholarship recipient, and his mother Geneine

Music lessons were not something that we could do right now in our budget. This scholarship allowed Cairo an opportunity he would not have had. They grow up quickly and the timing was so important—to be able to act on it and get the lessons for him now was critical. The scholarship made that possible for our family.

It has been wonderful seeing him blossom into his new talent. He is exceeding our expectations and taking responsibility and applying discipline– which makes us very happy to see. He is a regular 9 year old boy but the experience at Callanwolde has expanded his interests—he has even starting listening to Bach and Beethoven!
