Brother Dr. Marco Clark, Founder and CEO of the School stated, "Here, we are giving our students a premier learning environment for academic excellence that will grow dynamic and gifted leaders forward." At Q & A, students asked very thought provoking. One student asked, "Why should someone consider becoming a member of Omega?" The Grand Basileus smiled and said, "I could be here all day on this question but the first thing is that it's important that members are friends first. We are also committed to stellar excellence, community service and global impact; real leadership!"
