“The Residential Life at IJGA is awesome for when you go to college because you are away from your family and you’re a little bit on your own, which is a good start. And the friends are awesome – you get to meet people from all over the world and from different cultures and the best part is that IJGA is just one big family. My parents are really proud of me that I’m going to Texas A&M. They’ve said I’ve matured a lot since first going to the academy. Now that I’ve been on my own, they know I can handle myself when I go to college.” – Mickey Werenski, Class of 2013 and Texas A&M University Commit

“I just think that the IJGA has been a godsend, really. When he came the first year he was in the eighth grade and it was the first time he was away from home. I think it was harder on me than him, but he had great house parents. They treated all the kids like they were their own and made it like a family atmosphere. That environment made me feel more comfortable with him being at the academy by himself. And I think it made him feel better too!” – Christy Dietrich, Parent of Ben Dietrich (Class of 2013 and University of South Carolina Commit)
