Welton Academy: An all boys’ school. Old fashioned strict traditional school. A Very expensive school; almost like military school. Four pillars: Honor, tradition, discipline, and excellence
1. decadence- moral decay. Without discipline there is decadence. Excrement- crap. The opposite of crap is excellence.
horrors- things that are terrifying. If you honor something, then you aren’t scared of it, or the consequences that come with honoring it. travesty- something bad that happened and then someone makes a mockery out of it. And keeping tradition keeps a travesty from happening. The boys take the four pillars as a complete joke.
