Meet the Teacher Night

Virtual Style
August 27, 2020


Welcome to the “Meet-the-Teacher” night virtual edition. We are so happy to finally introduce ourselves to you. After several days of teaching your daughters, we want to convey our utmost gratitude and appreciation for your choice to send your daughter(s) to St. Catherine of Siena Academy. Listed below are the course titles by department. Each course has a link to a video introduction to the class. Although these introductions are brief, we encourage you to reach out to any one of us via email with specific questions you may have. We look forward to ‘seeing’ you throughout this academic year.

Before you begin, please visit PowerSchool to view your STAR’s schedule. Then find each class below and “Meet-the-Teacher.” We hope you enjoy your evening.

God bless,
The SCA Faculty
