My senior year of high school was spent at TALH. It must say it was one of the most rewarding years of my life. The things I took away from there, so far exceed what you gain from high school I cannot even being to go into from here.
TALH gave me the opportunity (though at the time I didn’t know just how valuable on one it would be) to step out on my own, but not step out 100% on my own, in a way an intermediary stage between life at home and the real world. I have ambitious dreams and aspirations that TALH only fuelled.
Unlike high school, and university life, the administrators at TALH take a very personal role. Do not think I am saying this is the perfect organization, but for a student looking to get a head start on his/her life, and with dreams that are larger than their current surroundings, this is the perfect organization, and an excellent blend of high school and university.
