From its Hardscrabble years in the nineteenth century Western Reserve Academy inherited and has
striven to carry on the academic aim of giving a thorough classical and scientific preparation for college.
Yet its purpose is broader, for life in a boy's boarding school is not only preparation for the future. It is
in itself an important part of every boy's life. Therefore the larger aim is to make of a boy's years at Re-
serve a full and rich experience in which he discovers and develops his capacities as an individual and as a
member of a closely-knit community.
A boy achieves a sense of independence if he lives in an atmosphere in which he assumes more and
more responsibility for his own actions and for the welfare of the group. This atmosphere should express
the ideals of simple, disciplined livingg hard, honest work, informal, sincere friendliness. Only as boys
live and practice these do they come to understand and value them.
To make the most of his educational opportunities, a boy must live up to his capacities. His satis-
faction lies in doing as well as he can. He must look upon his individual interests as opportunities and
find stimulation and excitement in pursuing them. Hard work is more important than high marks be-
cause the fomier reflects a desire to grow by learning. Academic studies come first but athletics and
activities, participated in by all, are vital parts of the learning process.
Close boy-master relationships, based on shared interests and congeniality, are fundamental in such
a school as Reserve. From them life-long friendships often develop. Reserve is committed to the belief
that close association with men of character, ability, and devotion to their calling provides the best means
for helping a boy to discover his qualities and to build them into manhood.
