Meet the Directress
With over two decades as the Directress of Mount Saint Mary Academy and 44 years as a Sister of Mercy of the Americas, I have proudly led our community which is robust in its pursuit of academic excellence and compassionate service to others on a local and global scale. Each day, our classrooms and hallways are filled with young women who have a vested interest in developing as empowered, spiritual and well-rounded leaders. They have been confident, since their first day as Mounties, in our credo: Successful Journeys Begin Here. Our esteemed faculty, staff, and coaches are devoted to helping our girls attain success and achieve their pursuits.
Our alumnae are strong proof of Mount Saint Mary Academy’s history of 115 years. They have emerged as the top professionals in their respective fields – business, finance, medicine, law, STEM, fine and performing arts, and beyond. When they return to campus or reach out to us via email or social media, we enthusiastically celebrate them as they credit the Mount culture and experience as profoundly motivating their achievements. As each of our young women accept their diplomas and go on to reputable colleges and universities, they carry with them our tradition, mission and core values.
I invite you to learn the many ways in which Mount Saint Mary Academy can be the start to your daughter’s successful journey. Join us at Open House or schedule a Freshman For a Day visit. We look forward to welcoming you.
