A Letter From Our Principal

February 2021

Dear Prospective Families

My name is Satti Marchan, and it is with great pleasure that I share my beliefs with you as you consider St. Rose of Lima Catholic Academy for your child(ren)

I have been a Catholic School Principal for twenty four years. I believe that the qualities I display are all infused with the spiritual teachings of the Church. I inspire with a vision, that is focused on the future, and in creating a path for the students to achieve long term goals.

I seek solutions rather than excuses. I am not easily distracted from focusing on the mission of the school in all areas; academic excellence, Catholic identity, governance, development, enrollment management, constituent relations, and operations. I constantly work to make positive changes. I am realistic but flexible, fair and consistent, and very organized.

Being the principal of a school has always been more than a job. It is a life and the choice I made. It is my desire to be a part of a bigger purpose. Catholic education is at a crossroad and it needs servant leadership to guide these great institutions. I am a leader whose passion is to strengthen Catholic Schools and shape a future in which these schools continue to be a thriving entity.

I believe that all Catholic School Principals must have a vision. This must encompass a school system that supports education for all students regardless of their socioeconomic status. Our school community must be financially accessible to all our students, and demonstrate a strong Catholic identity while maintaining educational excellence.

We must keep Jesus Christ as the center of Catholic education. We are called upon to teach as Jesus taught. It is important to focus on the spiritual development of our students so that they do not lose connection with the Catholic faith. I believe that a Catholic School Principal is one who gives testimony by her own life and represents the brand that is the school.

My aim to build relations around common goals by ensuring all members of the school community participate in the successes of the school. I have always tried to ensure that personal disadvantages, intellectual or financial, is not a barrier to achievement. I have high expectations for all students, and fully understand the different learning styles. I will never give up on any student.

I am confident that through innovation, hard work and collaboration, the faculty and I will ensure that every student achieves his/her own success and leaves the school prepared for what lies ahead.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

I look forward to serving you and working with your child(ren)

Thank you and God Bless.

Sincerely,

Satti Marchan
