Points of pride

“At Dove we have scholars, not just students,” said Tommy Brooks, principal at Dove Academy. “We work to motivate students to make and reach goals by making a human connection with them. Getting to know and gaining the respect of each family makes them feel valued and that they are part of something. If students believe in and value themselves, they will have the confidence to indulge in their interests and seek out achievement. We guide students in this process by stressing the importance of college and planning for the future. At Dove, we believe that every student has a story and that we are here to walk alongside them so that they can achieve greatness.”
