Une of the most beautiful school buildings in America houses the Junior School. Its lines are ff d b and i d if ' so one y evergreen vy an is shaded by lofty alms. Here. "our life. exempl' from public haunt, finds tongues in frees. boolts in the running broolrs, sermons in stones. and good in everything." Rs an introduction, Castle Heights suggests a foundation of mutual understanding, upon which may be erected the superstructure, a healthful, useful and happy school experience for your boy. As chief corner stone of this foundation the Academy would place its own responsibility to you. It proposes in this book to talk to you about your boy. It expresses a willingness to receive him as a charge, and it offers to accept whole-heartedly and genuinely the grave responsibility of expending its wisdom and experience in his behalf. It pledges its best efforts to do for him what you, as devoted and ambi- tious parents, would do for him yourselves, did oppor- tunity and circumstances permit. Yet there is another stone in this foundation. The Academy would he unfair to itself and to you, if it did not call this to your thoughtful attention. That is, your responsibility to the Academy. There is built up at Castle Heights, a carefully planned system by means of which wonderful things may be accomplished for the normal boy. We know of no other system that will accomplish more. Yet even this system will fail to some degree unless the parents of each cadet give the Academy the same whole-hearted cooperation towards the upbuilding of the boy that the Academy pledges itself to give the parents. This applies especially in connection with the following vital considerations: Too much money to spend-demoralizing. Consent to drop subjects because they seem hard- weakening. Permission to open credit accounts or to draw checks and sign drafts indiscriminately-ruinous. Assumption of the attitude that the cadet's duty to the Academy is a matter exclusively between the Acad- emy and the cadet-damaging. Encouragement to overstay furlough, to report late DART ONE urmzooucilon at thc opening of term, to leave ahead of everyone else- all these are injurious to the highest degree, not only to the boy, but also to the institution. With all its heart Castle Heights believes in the pleas- ant side of school life, but not at the cost of the better and more valuable things. There are a hundred ways in which the parent can support the Academy, make its work more valuable, its teachings more constructive, and its law and order more helpful-there are just as many ways in which the parent, unintentionally, can hinder the Academy, and by hindering the Academy, also hinder the boy. That is why Castle Heights must conscientiously state plainly at the very outset, that it cannot undertake to accomplish worthwhile results for your boy unless you will pledge your cooperation. Let us remind you that the boys of today, your boy among them, will be the men of tomorrow. Civilization is in a critical period. Tremendous problems must be solved by this next generation. There will be a great need for clear thinking and clean living. What kind of men are these boys going to he? The Academy is making it its busines to help answer that question in the way that every father and mother wants it answered. Consider that boy of yours for a moment. Consider his education. Does he know how to study? Does he study? Has he the exclusive oversight of trained men who know their business? Is his school course properly arranged? Is he passing his classes? Is he accumulating mere facts or is he learning to use his head? Can he think? Can he spell? Can he write a decent letter? When he finishes, will he be prepared for college, for business, or for life? Consider his physique. Does he carry himself well? Is his eye clear and bright? Is he in bed every night by ten and up every morning before seven? Has he the

A PICTURE OF THE CADETS AT PARADE poise of body that comes from superbly developed mus- cles and systematic exercise in the open air? Consider his habits and character. Is he obedient? Do you have to tell him twice to do a thing? Does he want to argue with you? Does he know twice as much as you knew at his age? Do you know who his com- panions are? Do you know where he goes and what he does? Is he neat? Is he orderly? Does he shine the heels of his shoes? Can he begin a thing and finish it? Does he respect his elders and superiors? These things are straws that show which way the wind blows. Castle Heights offers to help you answer these ques- tions and many others that must he answered if your hoy is to do his full part in this World. As a real school, Castle Heights believes that its pur- pose is to develop boys into outstanding men. Its pro- gram for endeavoring to accomplish this is definite, and resolves itself into six distinct heads: 1. Isolation. Castle Heights is located just outside the corporate limits of Lebanon, Tennessee, thirty miles from Nashville. This beautiful, historic little town of 8,000 inhabitants is a kind-hearted, Christian community which for eighty years has been the seat of Cumberland University. It has no atmosphere of bright lights, of questionable resorts, of city temptations and distractions. Here a boy breathes the clean air of the unspoiled country. 2. Faculty. Castle Heights faculty officers are gen- tlemen as well as scholars. They are men of experience and ability, each a specialist in his own line. The boy in his manifold moods and problems is an old story to them. They are here because they are ready and willing to make the development of your boy their personal and particular business. The faculty for the coming year is larger and stronger than it has been in the Academy's fifty years of success. 3. Equipment. Castle Heights is one of the best equipped boys' schools in the country. Its seventeen brick and stone buildings, including commodious audi- torium, gymnasium and swimming pool, generous sized classrooms, modern laboratory, beautiful mess-hall, ar- mory, memorial library, hospital, comfortable cadet quarters, spacious parade ground and athletic fields, place it in an enviable position. 4. Scholarship. Castle Heights scholarship is widely recognized. It is fully accredited. Its graduates enter the great colleges and universities without exam- ination and maintain themselves. No consideration comes ahead of scholarship here. The Military De- partment is subservient to the Academic. Athletics have their proper place and the school is famous for its teams. The best that modern educational thought and methods can offer awaits your boy. 5. Discipline. Castle Heights is essentially mili- tary because it believes that under no other system can mind, spirit and body be so successfully developed. It takes pride in the neat and military appearance of its
