Parent Testimonial
"Even though I was fighting back tears, (I was unsuccessful, by the way), I knew my daughter was in the right place. I had none of the worries about leaving her because I believed Schreiner was an exceptional school with a very caring staff. Rachel is beginning her Junior year this year and she is thriving. I have always been thankful she stopped at the Schreiner table on college night her senior year in high school. Best of luck to all the students for a successful year. The campus looks great!" Jeanie Perdue Ward - Schreiner Mom

Dear Schreiner Parent,

Sending your son or daughter off to college can be an exciting and overwhelming time. It is a time filled with emotional highs and lows. You should feel confident in your choice to send your child to Schreiner. Schreiner offers a wide range of experiences that serve as preparation for success and satisfaction in a complex and rapidly changing world. Your student will inevitably encounter some challenges along the way, and our office is designed to provide all of the resources needed to help support your son or daughter while here at Schreiner.

Your student will have virtually unlimited opportunities for engagement and leadership when they come to campus this Fall. Please encourage them to get involved in the life of the community and to reach out for assistance should they need it.

Do not hesitate to call me at 830-792-7277 or email me at with any questions you may have. I look forward to partnering with you as your son or daughter begins his/her university journey of intellectual and spiritual growth.

Go Mountaineers.

Charles M Hueber, EdD
