Une of the most beautiful school buildings in
America houses the Junior School. Its lines are

shaded by lofty alms. Here. "our life. exempl'

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
Too much money to spend-demoralizing.
Consent to drop subjects because they seem hard-
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
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
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
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
