“I’m thrilled to be connected with an organization that is committed to developing the whole student and can offer small class sizes and individual attention. I’m pleased to share my experience and help our Academy graduate students who are ready for their life’s work, having discovered their personal strengths and interests, and goals for who they want to be. Quoting SMA alum, Becca Cesario of Harbor Springs; ‘…because what you want to be can change.’ A Classical Catholic high school education was a real blessing in my life, and I feel called to be a part of providing this experience and opportunity to students right here in Northern Michigan.”
