In 480 BC
The Spartan King gathered 300 Spartans.
Only the strongest, bravest men of the royal bodyguard were taken to defend Sparta against a foreign invader.
Nearly 2500 years later, the Spartans are remembered for their courage, discipline, strength, teamwork and their culture of “no retreat, no surrender.” We carry on the tradition of the Spartans, in our namesake and in our approach of developing young men and women into exceptional members of our community.
