After I got in, I was basically bound to Regis...or public school. But, then I received a scholarship to Fordham Prep. It was great, unlike Regis or the PS near me, I'd be able to swim in high school. I've loved every minute of it. Fordham's Catholic foundation is loving, not forceful. Values promoted in and outside the classrooms changed and molded me for the better. From the freshman orientation, to freshman retreat, to winning City Swimming Championships, to Latin, to Tennis, to Biology, to winning City Swimming Championships again (this time with an undefeated season), to chemistry, to Crew (rowing) States, to Global II, to the School dances, to the play productions, to the train ride home everyday, to the bodega and Rocko's Pizzaria a short walk away, to Guest speakers, Metropolitan Day, Sophomore Dream Day, and so on. My career here is not even halfway done.
