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!

“This school is not only college prep, it is life prep. I know that my daughter is being educated to go out and make a positive difference in the world. She will graduate with the confidence and courage to lead wherever she goes in life. I love the principal, the teachers, and the families. It is such a blessing to be a part of the SCA Family. I know the friends my daughter has made will be her sisters for life.”

“A crazy amount of extra curricular options-basically if you are passionate about it [SCA] will find a way to help you bring it to fruition!”

“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!”

“Another thing I enjoyed about the school was the athletics. I played four different sports at this school and I had the same experience with all of them. The coaches really cared about me, not just how well I was performing and I was treated respectfully on and off the court. Further more, I felt that I was really being pushed physically and mentally during practice which I value in any activity.”

“SCA proves you can educate young women to both get into Heaven and Harvard!”

“[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.”
