I would have to agree with Mike. The website should be more about the marketing and drawing the reader in to make them want to read more. Statistically most people don't read more than the first paragraph or spend more than 30 seconds trying to figure out what a website is about (shorter time than that for Gen-Y readers).
You might consider putting the content of your page into separate (pdf?) documents and slim your pages down to catch the reader's eye and interest. You also might consider using a blog format instead. Add catchy headlines to the blog entries and allow users to easily scan for items of interest.
