Worcester students At Worcester Prep, students learn how to perform and speak before audiences beginning in the Lower School. From preschool to grade 12 students practice skills that they'll need not only for their education but in careers and com- munity service activities. "Through practice," said Dr. Mer- le Marsh, Special Projects direc- tor at the Berlin school, "they gain the confidence that will help them not only with public speak- ing but also with interviews and day-to-day interaction. We want to help students to feel at ease learn when speaking before audiences" The students at Worcester gain practice through speaking in class, at parent programs and in assemblies and dramatic perform- ances. Programs such as the Christmas Candlelight Service and the Spring Art and Music Fes- tival involve all students, pre- school through five, in perform- ances before large audiences.

Our Organizational Leadership program, offered at New Castle since 2002, has been so successful that by bringing it to the greater Salisbury area, we hope we could bring the pro- gram's benefits to a wider audi- ence." The master of science in Orga- nizational Leadership (MSOL) is an 18-month accelerated degree program that meets Fridays from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The all- inclusive tuition covers 12 three- credit courses, a laptop computer with operating software, wireless network access, modem and Mi- crosoft Office 2000. Also includ- ed are a three-day retreat, meals and refreshments, fees, and all books, readings and course mate- rials.
