“A Culver education has already given me opportunities that I would not have gotten at my old school. The rigorous courses push me to be my best and to be thankful every day that I am here. I have ridden horses ever since I can remember. To get to do that through the horsemanship program, while also getting everything else that Culver has to offer — it genuinely blows my mind, every day!”Jayden HallJud Little '65 Scholar
