Recently, Florida-based Casa Laxmi Foundation (www.casalaxmi.com) assumed the leadership of the Board of Trustees of West Nottingham Academy. Casa Laxmi was founded to establish an exclusive, international K-12 boarding school for privileged and underprivileged children. The Casa Laxmi founders are international business leaders, philanthropists, politicians, and educators. Casa Laxmi does not seek or accept donations and has undertaken this $140 million project for which the funds have been fully provided by its Founding Members.
Dozens of professors, scientists, and educators from various prestigious universities and organizations in the U.S. and abroad have joined the Casa Laxmi Advisory Boards. West Nottingham Academy and its students will enjoy an immediate and direct benefit from these university affiliations and brilliant minds enveloping WNA students during their stay at WNA and beyond.
Casa Laxmi intends to develop West Nottingham Academy into one of the premier boarding schools in the world during the remainder of this decade. In addition to campus enhancements, significant changes such as emphasis on EQ, visiting professors to WNA on a monthly basis, international business leaders to give regular lectures on entrepreneurship, etc. The objective of WNA is to develop its students into great human beings and future leaders with high EQ that the world needs. As you know, WNA celebrates its 280th anniversary this year and this major transformation sets the tone for its journey over the next 280 years.
The plans are even greater as West Nottingham approaches its 300th anniversary in 2044! We envision offering prestigious internships for students in 11th and 12th grades; excursions such as skiing in the Alps and camping in the Himalayas; the addition of a waterfront campus; and a permanent museum on campus with priceless art and artifacts.
We are grateful to have such a dedicated and knowledgeable team of advisors from Casa Laxmi Foundation as part of the West Nottingham Academy community. Their expertise and support are invaluable to our students, and we are excited to see all that our students will accomplish with their guidance.
