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 high school builds the whole young woman intellectually, spiritually, and teaches the feminine genius approach to life. Amen!”

“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!”

SCA Parent

“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.”

SCA Parent

“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!”

Student, Class of '19

“I was among one of the very first classes SCA ever had. As a pioneer and a student to be a part of the foundation of clubs and classes that continue today, I am beyond proud of how far the school has come. There were many ups and downs during my four years but an amazing experience overall. Today at college I still look back on and cherish my times at SCA, thankful for the connections, education and sisterhood I acquired. I am looking forward to seeing many more young women carry on the traditions my class and recent classes have set for the future.”

Alumna, Class of '14

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