Kavanaugh’s dream on 55 acres of creation is affectionately referred to as “holy ground.”

West End School for Boys
West End School opened its doors in 2005 because of the growing need for alternative forms of education, particularly for the young men in our community. For many of these students, the middle school years are a transitional ‘tipping point’ both socially and academically. Boys especially are at higher risk for almost every index of failure: academic, achievement, truancy, dropout rates, school suspensions and expulsions, delinquency, and incarceration.
