HS Principal Iswari Natarajan gave the keynote speech at the Global Women of IBM Conference in Boulder on October 17.  She spoke about women and leadership and her speech received rave reviews:

"Your message resonated with everyone and all found you engaging, humorous, and so very inspirational. Many said you were the best speaker we've ever had and I tend to agree. Your girls and SMA are very fortunate to have you and we were very fortunate to hear your story."

"THANK YOU for such an incredible talk today! Wow....you're a very talented speaker with a super powerful message. We all loved hearing you! Thank you for driving home such truly important points. I loved your prescription for happiness and your thoughts on leadership were exactly spot on. I'm going to be teaching a group of 25 adults in a few weeks and I will mention some of your thoughts on leadership...Some of my favorite points...embrace failure as it is the path to empowered courage (empowered courage - what a beautiful phrase!)...grit, resilience and attitude will outshine aptitude and talent (so true and I've personally seen it again and again)...having fun has absolutely nothing and absolutely everything to do with calculus (I agree completely!)...problems come in easy, medium and fun (I'm going to use this one on my group of adults)...being positive is contagious...and being happier makes your life rich and full (100% true). Thank you for brightening our morning and giving us the motivation to be authentically ourselves and never stop dreaming big."

On Friday, October 5, eighth-grade students and their parents shared favorite foods together in the Forum. The dishes represented the traditions of their families' cultures. Some of the foods were recipes passed down for generations and included Roast Tapada from Peru, Elk Stew from the United States, Taiwanese Fried Rice, German Candies, and Onigiri from Japan. The luncheon capped a week of field studies and guest visits as part of the eighth-grade thematic study of roots. Through literature, global studies, religion, and environmental science, students are exploring their identity, how it is formed, and what actions they can take to act for peace and justice.

  • All Academy News

St. Mary's Academy is pleased to present an overview of our 2018 - 2023 strategic plan. The Board of Trustees led an effort to develop our five-year strategic plan during the 2017 - 2018 school year.  They solicited input from many constituents including members of the administration, parents, students, and faculty.  The process included an environmental scan, competitive analysis, parent satisfaction surveys, and more.  

This document sets the direction for the next three to five years at St. Mary's Academy and, as such, will be an essential tool as we plan for current and future projects.

We are especially grateful to Margie Felsburg and Randy Weil who led this effort on behalf of the Board of Trustees.  Please take some time to review and let us know if you have any questions.  Thank you.
