Principal's Message

Principal's Message Image
For almost 80 years, Fontbonne Hall Academy has been preparing young women to become professional leaders who serve their communities with confidence and compassion. As an all-girls’ Catholic secondary school owned by the Sisters of Saint Joseph, we are committed to Jesus’ mission to promote the love of God in one’s community, and to respond to the vocational needs of our time. We challenge our students to achieve their highest intellectual and creative potential in science, math, the arts and humanities by providing them with the tools necessary to achieve success in their college studies and their chosen career. Enriched by a diversity of persons and gifts in our school community, Fontbonne develops young women to become global citizens who live and work among people of all faiths and cultures.

We provide a learning environment that not only stresses academic excellence, but also spiritual growth, which is embodied in our mission statement of “unity and reconciliation through all-inclusive love”. Fontbonne has a long tradition of sisterhood that has provided a welcoming environment that invites social inclusiveness and moral support while instilling leadership skills, spiritual strength and self-confidence. As such, our alumnae leave us as intelligent, confident young women with loving hearts and a solid moral foundation.

As you browse the pages of our website, you will see examples of 21st Century learning. This is exemplified by:
  • Our rigorous STEM program that aims to close the gender gap in STEM careers
  • An award-winning visual arts program
  • A Religion Department that explores Catholic identity, while inviting each student to examine her own relationship with God
  • An English department that provides the tools for effective written and oral communications in a rapidly changing digital world
  • A Social Studies department that offers historical perspective on the cultural, social and political issues that affect women today
  • A World Language department that provides students the opportunity to understand and appreciate different cultures
  • A wide variety of athletic teams and student activities that develop our students' leadership and collaboration skills
Our Director of Admissions, Victoria Adamo, would be happy to schedule a visit day for your daughter. Please feel free to reach out to her at vadamo@fontbonne.org and come and see all that our school has to offer,


Sincerely,
Mary Ann Spicijaric
Principal
