Reflections Unlimited Toured Italy in July 2014
The Reflection Girls experienced the rich culture of Italy as they visited sites such as The Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistene Chapel, St. Mark's Square, Romeo & Juliet's Balcony, a Gondola ride down the peaceful canals in Venice, explorations in Florence and Rome and much more!!!
In 2013, we had an intense three day summer leadership Cultural and Enrichment retreat at the SpringHill Suites at the Mall of Georgia Buford. Intense topics on leadership, college prep/careers, business etiquette, body image, presentation skills, dining etiquette, social media, cultural diversity, performing arts, make-up & fashion.
In 2012, we had our annual Spring Gala at the Charlotte Marriot SouthPark. Our third graduating class presented talent in various forms, mainly readings, instrumentals and modeling. The young ladies were stunning as they walked the white carpet adorned in white gowns.
In June 2012, we also went to London. Our tours included Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, Hyde Park, St. Paul's Cathedral, Tower of London, and more! Most monumental was our visit to Pret a Portea as we had Afternoon Tea at the Berkeley. Our Princesses were very excited!
In 2011 we had our March session at Savannah's Tea Room in Fort Mill, South Carolina. We were honored to have a table of mothers to join us. Both mothers and students were excited as they experienced having afternoon tea with dignity and class.
We began with our first excursion in 2010 as we spent a fun- filled weekend in Atlanta. We enjoyed the Alvin Ailey Dancers at the Fabulous Fox Theatre followed by an enjoyable dinner at the famous Benihana's Japanese Hibachi in Buckhead. Of course, no trip with girls would be official without a quick mall run to Lennox Square. On Sunday, we toured the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the world. Needless to say, the girls had a blast!

Would you like to see your daughter develop into a confident young lady possessing poise and dignity?
In today's world, we are constantly bombarded every waking hour with negative influences from television commercials, magazines, the internet, and popular culture. The goal of advertising of this type is to convince us that we are somehow inadequate and incomplete to create a dependency on products to adorn the exterior. Reflections Unlimited will teach your daughter to discern and filter these images, fortifying them from the inside. Through exposure to etiquette training, character education, instructional lessons, mentorship, activities and guided group discussions, your daughter will become empowered and possess the skill set to be poised, confident and self-assured in any social setting.
Good character programs can: (1) improve school culture and climate; (2) improve student behavior; (3) reduce acts of violence; (4) reduce drug and substance abuse; (5) improve identity and attachment to schools; (6) improve academic performance.- 2007 Research Study by Joseph W. Mazzola, Executive Director of the Character Education Partnership.
The enhancement of self-worth through preventive and counseling interventions was found to be important in young adults as a source of protection from depressive symptoms.-2006 Research Study featured in the Journal of Counseling and Development.
