Celebrating Excellence: Why Parents Choose Excel Academy
Renee Hibbard and TJ
Renee Hibbard, of Chelsea, adopted her son TJ at the age of four, who lived in seven different foster homes up until that time. TJ, now a 7th grader at Excel Academy – East Boston, attended two different traditional public schools prior to enrolling at Excel.
Renee has a compelling story to tell and there are many parents who have similarly challenging stories to share. But the common denominator for all of our families is that they appreciate that Excel Academy is providing their children with a high-quality public education that will prepare each of them for the future, including college.
