It is a privilege for me to write a recommendation for L. Dean Forman. I have known Dean for almost 40 years as a neighbor, business associate, colleague, and friend. I have not only known Dean but have been well acquainted with his wife and their children. Dean has great ability to get things done. He is bright, focused, and tenacious.  When he puts his mind to something it will happen. I have watched that with many business activities as well as personal goals and community activities.  

Dean has a great interest in education. He joined the school board in our area and worked very hard to help improve the education here but he also became very frustrated at the state of our education. So, he decided to pursue his own doctorate program to create something that would improve education for our younger generation and would also preserve the freedom of our nation. It is amazing that he took on pursuing a doctorate program when he was already very busy running a successful business, raising a family, and being involved in community activities but that is the way Dean functions.  He completed that doctoral program and, in the process, created the Charter School John Adams Academy. He has continued to dedicate his time to his passion of improving education for the upcoming generation at the same time he has continued his business and his other activities.  

John Adams Academy has continued to grow under Dean’s leadership and has a superb reputation not only in this community but also in many parts of the country. Many people would like to have Dean expand this charter school into their communities or states. The waiting list for students who want to enroll in John Adams Academy continues to grow along with its reputation. That reputation stems from Dean, his vision, and his determination. I give the highest recommendation for Dean and the miracle worker he has become.

I am co-founder and CEO of the John Adams Academies, an institution that is perhaps the most unique charter school system in America today. The Academies’ curriculum is designed to give its students an American Classical Leadership Education®. This is an education that pursues truth, beauty and goodness and turns its scholars outward in search of those whom they can serve in becoming servant leaders. This website is dedicated to sharing the concepts of an American Classical Leadership Education with its readers so that more citizens can benefit from the truth, virtue and wisdom of the past. The thoughts and opinions I share on this page are my personal views.
