    "My son went to Orchard years ago and loved it. The foundation he got there carried him through the rest of his school experiences, which include a PhD from Purdue. His field is Quantitative Analysis, and the strong math program at Orchard I know contributed to his interest in this field. It is a wonderful school."
    -- A Former Orchard Parent--
