Although Emma may not always initiate, anyone who strikes up a conversation with her quickly discovers that she is not only warm and caring, but also deeply insightful. Emma has grown up steeped in Classical Christian culture, but it’s easy to see that she thrives here by nature rather than merely nurture. “The education at AFA is wonderful. I wouldn’t enjoy having an ‘easy ride’ to graduation,” she explains. It’s no secret that Emma enjoys being challenged. She loves to read the classics, even during the summer, and she chose to write her senior thesis on Nietzsche and Christianity.
In 2008 Lauren Sloan and her family moved from Lynchburg to
Northern Virginia in pursuit of a better gym. “I started gymnastics when I was five,” said Sloan, who began attending AFA in 2010, her sophomore year. Sloan and her two older brothers began training at Capital Gymnastics National Training Center in Burke, Va. “We all excelled and competed in many state, regional and national championships. My brothers even went on to compete at the World Championships.”
“I really wanted to go on to college gymnastics,” said Sloan, who typically practiced five hours a day, five days a week.
