Erica and Shawn Moore
Parents of Gabrielle ’19 and Madison ’19
We joined the City Academy family in 2012 when our two daughters, Gabrielle and Madison, were in kindergarten. City Academy was the right fit for our family because it provided everything we were looking for in a school.
City Academy has provided a solid educational foundation for our girls. They are confident, focused, and have a love for learning. City Academy has far exceeded our expectations!
“No matter how intelligent a person may be, you will accomplish more if you have a sense of urgency about getting things done.”
– John Brightman, 1932 – 2017
City Academy recently lost one of our “Founding Fathers.” John Brightman led us to our early success. He was an original board member, generous supporter, and a fierce and fearless fundraiser, who always pushed for excellence.
John was also my little league baseball coach. It had been many years since I had seen him, when we ran into each other at a friend’s wedding in 1997. I told him that we were starting a school. John immediately exclaimed, “Great idea! I want to help you raise money.” What start-up nonprofit doesn’t wish for that?
