“A daffodil, pushing up through the dark earth to the spring, knowing somehow deep in its roots that spring and light and sunshine will come, has more courage and more knowledge of the value of life than any human being I’ve met.” — Madeleine L’Engle


Daffodils on the Stratford campus are a tradition that date back to the 1960s, when the academy was located downtown. They have always been associated with basketball tournaments.
