This program, begun in 1996, brings to Greens Farms Academy at least twice each year inspiring, prominent individuals of scholarly and contemporary interest, public servants, academicians, people of letters, or other public figures who have made a sustained and lasting contribution to education defined in its broadest sense. Each visiting scholar is invited to spend the day at the School, attend classes, and work with our students. After a reception, the visiting scholar delivers a public lecture for the community-at-large.
