Advancement Insight - Building on Success 2019

Every moment is a fresh beginning - T.S. Eliot

The start of a new year brings a time for a fresh start, new opportunities and resolutions to be better you. When the calendar rolled over to 2019 it brought me to Saint John’s Catholic Prep as your new Director of Enrollment Management. With excitement, I knew this new chapter would bring opportunities to connect with old friends, meet current Saint John’s families and develop relationships with prospective students. It will also allow me to showcase the incredible academics, athletics, faith, and clubs of our school community with the greater Frederick community and beyond.

From the moment I stepped into the school, I could feel the joy and see young people engaged in stimulating academics and activities. I look forward to spending time in the classroom, getting to know our talented faculty and supporting our after-school activities to better understand the culture that is Saint John’s Catholics Prep.

Our enrollment season is in full swing with applications coming in for the Class of 2023. We are busy compiling files on each potential student, collecting testing scores, transcripts, and recommendations. This past week we conducted over 70 interviews with prospective students. The students were nervous but excited to share what they liked about Saint John’s and what they were looking forward to most when they begin their high school career.

In the coming months, we will look at how we have recruited students in the past, what has worked and what steps need improving. This school is a special place and we all have a role in sharing it with others. I invite you to stop by, introduce yourselves and share what makes SJCP special to you. I look forward to getting to know you all.
