Five Russian boys at academy in fall

Five Russian boys selected for their potential to be leaders when they are grown will be welcomed to their host school today. The boys are being taught in American schools through a nonprofit organization called the Renaissance Project, which finds children living in impoverished countries and brings them to the United States. These boys are currently being taught at North Broward Prep in Coconut Creek in South Florida, and beginning next fall, they will attend Academy at the Lakes, a private, nonprofit K-12 preparatory school in Land O'Lakes. The boys, who are in grades 5 through 8, will visit the school at 10:30 a.m. in the McCormick Campus Gymnasium at Academy at the Lakes, 2331 Collier Parkway.
