SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: MORGAN SCHAEFER

Morgan entered Le Jardin Academy in Grade 8. Her time at LJA has been spent leading the Days For Girls club, being a part - and now the president - of the National Honors Society, participating in Wild Kids, interning as a Kindergarten teaching assistant during Impact Term, and teaching English to South African students for the past two summers.


"Every part of my experience at LJA stands out: eighth grade camp, cross-country and swim teams, amazing friends, and learning to be comfortable with public speaking and time management. I have grown so much and have loved every minute at this school."


Morgan plans to study Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education or English as a Second Language, to then pursue a Masters in Elementary Education. She's narrowed her selection to Ithaca College, Linfield College, and Texas Christian University after also being accepted at Portland University, Oregon State University, Pacific University, Colorado University at Colorado Springs, Colorado University at Denver, Colorado University at Boulder, Drexel University, Indiana University, and Purdue University.


Best wishes, Morgan, on your adventure in education and stay connected to your LJA ohana always!
