Principal's Page

It is a privilege to work in such an amazing school with the mission to educate young women in their feminine genius! I have been a high school educator for the past 19 years in public and private schools and can testify to the many ways our children struggle to know themselves and to know God (especially in the adolescent years!). I am blessed to have come to St. Catherine’s in 2014 and be a part of what God is doing here.

My goal as principal is to create a learning environment where every young woman can grow in her identity as a daughter of God, be confident in who she is and courageous in all she undertakes. To do this, St. Catherine’s educates both the mind and the heart, complementing a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum with opportunities for service. In all that a student does, I expect her to challenge herself, working on areas of weakness and building on areas of strength. In the classroom, our rich academic program can help each young woman develop her academic skills in preparation for collegiate studies.  I also expect her to be aware of the world around her, the needs in our community, and learn how to serve.

Most importantly, I am committed to rooting this community in the love of Jesus so we can grow together as a family of faith. This means that our school community attends Mass daily, we talk about the tough issues of faith in the classroom, and we grow in faith together, sharing in the Gospel message.  I extend this invitation of welcome for all to become part of our faith community, as a student, parent, staff, clergy, donor, or honored guest. You are always welcome here!

May we all journey on the road together and may Jesus bless us richly in these days!

“My family has had an excellent experience at this school so far. Beyond the beautiful new facility, I have been impressed with the teachers and the administration! They challenge the girls both academically and spiritually, they know them by name, and appear to have a genuine concern for each individual student. The school really feels like a family. As a parent, it is a blessing to me to know that my daughter is in such good hands when I drop her off everyday.”

“This school has a very strong faith atmosphere! The school is fairly new, but is starting to build a name for itself both spiritually and academically. The faculty and staff rock!”

“SCA is authentically and unapologetically Catholic. It’s excellence in academics and athletics is rooted in its mission to pass on the beauty of the Catholic faith in a way that is relevant to the modern world. The result is a constant focus on the character and virtue of its students, challenging them to be the best version of themselves not just academically, but spiritually as well.”

“An excellent school that brings the girls together more like sisters rather than friends.”

Zina

“This high school experience is like none other you can get anywhere. There is joy and comradery and the girls are happy and excel. They are being supported and encouraged by staff. You can watch a girl come in who had a bad experience elsewhere, bloom here and become a different girl in a short time. Can’t say enough good about it. Thank God the founders had this vision and followed through with it. Well needed and we are very thankful!”

“The community service, the focus on virtuous living, and the sisterhood really instills compassion and respect for all of humanity.”

“My first day of freshman year was something I never expected, Saint Catherines just felt like home. The atmosphere, staff, and the student body were all so amazing. I knew from the second I came to the school that it was where I was meant to be. I am currently a senior and my experience so far has been one too remember I have grown mentally, physically, spiritually and my journey has been one to remember. I love Saint Catherine of Siena and all the girls I have met are truly going to be my sisters throughout my life, its an amazing school and is a place I will call home forever.”

Alumna, Class of '18

“I loved every minute at St. Catherines! The friends I made there will always be a part of my family. This school taught me how to be a strong, intelligent, independent woman who is strong in her faith. I am blessed to say I got to experience SCA.”

“[Teachers] care about the success of each student. They come early to help students and stay after school if necessary. They are a super dedicated faculty.”
