Headmaster

Members of the O’Neal Community: In June, official notification of the renewal of our dual accreditation with the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) was received. Every five years this accreditation requires a self-study focusing on our mission, philosophy, curriculum and educational environment. In March 2011, a team of faculty and administrators from peer schools visited O’Neal to examine the work in the self-study. Of the parents, alumni, students, faculty and staff who participated in this year long process we thank you. A few highlighted commendations noted by the visiting team are: • An excellent sense of a caring and committed community that is felt and referenced by students, parents and faculty • A commitment to a challenging curriculum to inspire life-long learners • Academic studies and initiatives that prepare students for 21st Century educational experiences The information placed in this visiting team’s report will be helpful in our strategic planning process in the future. A tag line once used by O’Neal not too long ago was “Prepare for College, Prepare for Life”. As the world consistently becomes smaller and technology becomes greater… preparing students for life takes on a role different from earlier generations. While our faculty and staff are working hard to concentrate on college preparedness, they are also focusing on preparing each student for future success in life. Leading into our 40th year celebration of transforming lives, let us take this year to absorb how O’Neal was founded by a group of parents who wanted their children to experience an independent school education close to home. It is with great pride and gratitude we dedicate the 2011-2012 school year to the founding families. Through their vision we have The O’Neal School today. I hope you enjoy reading the summer issue of The O’Neal Magazine and I look forward to seeing you on campus in the very near future.

Wow! What a year of great excitement everyone experienced during the 2010-2011 school year. Whether it was the seniors greeting their little buddies as they arrived at McMurray Hall on opening day, the launch of the new website in October or the dedication of the cartwheel kids sculpture outside of Hannah Center in May, last year will go down in the record books as one of the finest at O’Neal.

“The Murder Room”

The O’Neal Fund and O’Neal’s annual auction: Forty and Fabulous – together raised over $425,000 in cash which enabled O’Neal to close the gap between tuition and endowment in the operating budget this past year. The O’Neal Fund, like in many independent schools, is the life-line to providing the best educational experience for the students. Last year it provided us the means to present programs like Living with Wolves, produce of The Murder Room, staged by the Upper School and send Middle School students to the regional Science Olympiad in Fayetteville. One special effort was the “Fund a Need” live auction item that totaled $44,000 for faculty professional development given by a group of auction attendees. Thanks to everyone who supported the O’Neal Fund and /or the Forty and Fabulous annual auction. You are appreciated for making O’Neal the best independent school in the Sandhills. ________________________________________________ As of June 30, 2011 $762,828 was attained in cash and pledges through the Bradshaw Challenge. The funds received directly assist the debt obtained in building the Hannah Center. Opened in 2008, the Hannah Center houses a 700seat gym which is near capacity most Friday evenings during volleyball and basketball seasons and the 250-seat theater where school gatherings and fine art productions are held. Many thanks go to Jean and Stan Bradshaw for offering the challenge.
