Why the name "Mile2"?

Mile2's name was derived from a directive given by Jesus Christ: 'If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles."(Matthew 5:41) This command has been paraphrased in recent times as "going the extra mile". In a historical context, a Roman Legionnaire was permitted by law to command any citizen to carry a load for him for a distance of approximately one mile. However, the subject was not legally bound to carry it any further. At Mile2 we strive to exceed our students, clients and partners' expectations in everything that we do.
