I was at SCLA in their final days of neglect and deceit. They had went from being a “prestigious” boarding school with a student body of over 500, to nothing more than a run down academy with very few staff and only a handful of students. The rules there never changed, and the overall mentality of staff was neglectful and oblivious to the emotional conflicts of individual students at SCLA. I can’t say i didn’t learn anything from the academy, and there are definitely a few individuals i met there that i will never forget, but that school was nothing more than a money trap for parents having difficulties understanding there teenagers, using kids to profit hundreds of thousand’s of dollars every year. I’m personally glad that the school has been shut down, recently being changed to a place where student’s can take college courses.
