“The Piedmont School is thrilled to move to the Oglethorpe campus and the beautiful learning environment it will provide for our students,” said Dr. Catherine Trapani, head of school for The Piedmont School in an OU release. “I envision Oglethorpe students serving as role models to the children of the Piedmont School, inspiring academic achievement and commitment to education.”
“We are excited to welcome The Piedmont School to our campus. This partnership offers volunteer and internship opportunities for our students, which in turn will benefit the children at the Piedmont School,” said Oglethorpe President Larry Schall. Several Oglethorpe psychology and communication majors have interned previously with the Piedmont School; one student helped to launch and staff their afterschool program.
