My husband and I have seen two of our children graduate from Hampden Academy; our third will graduate in June. We are delighted with the education that Hampden has provided all three. I don't think that anyone could dispute with a straight face the assertion that H.A.'s buildings are in dire need of help. But the school's courses and extracurricular offerings are diverse and rich; and the faculty are strong, highly qualified, and dedicated. H.A. graduates who have invested themselves in their education not only can speak intelligibly but also read and reason intelligently, work hard, and make our world better everywhere they go. H.A. grads are fixing our cars, building our homes, policing our community, litigating in our courts, treating our sick family members, teaching our children, performing music, leading troops in Iraq, and training new Marines to guard our nuclear weapons -- strong evidence that what Hampden does, works.
