From the Desk of Kathryn Woodson Barr, McAuley's Head of School...

Friday, January 15, was a memorable day for McAuley (as evidenced in the photo above). Together with our neighbor, UNE, McAuley signed a special articulation agreement that will afford our high performing students the opportunity to complete their college education in 3/4 of the time and with 3/4 of the expense. Dr. Ripich and all who gathered for the signing affirmed the perception and power of the All-Girl Advantage, the strength of McAuley academics, the gifts and talents of our student body and the tremendous opportunities sitting at our students' fingertips. Now, when folks ask me what makes McAuley special and different from the rest, I can confidently - and joyfully - add this partnership to our already extensive list.

We are dreaming big this year, and we need your help to make these dreams come true. Help the students of this school by connecting us to strong female leaders, notable organizations and worthy service leadership opportunities; assist by introducing a prospective student to the McAuley experience; commit to making a contribution to our Annual Fund. You - our McAuley families - are our greatest ambassadors, our greatest allies as we dream big. Thank you for helping us stretch the limit of possibility today and tomorrow.
