’s association with WWASPS as “a positive relationship that initially provided us with a very supportive network.” However, Pullan explained that SCLA has evolved into a unique and independent program. He does not foresee any significant changes in the school’s day-to-day operations as a result of the split.
“Since our vision has gradually changed and SCLA already looks so different from other WWASPS schools, the next logical step is to acknowledge those differences and move on,” said Pullan.
Pullan noted that WWASPS had received significant media scrutiny over the years, which has not helped SCLA’s reputation. However, he affirmed that this was not the primary reason for leaving the organization. “It’s a question of what we are now able to provide our students and families on our own as opposed to what we’ve done in the past with WWASPS’s help,” says Pullan.
WWASPS is an affiliation of (now) four specialty boarding schools
located in the United States and Jamaica. It is headquartered in St. George, Utah.
