Grateful to Maryvale staff

I would like to take this opportunity to let you know how Maryvale Preparatory School has enriched my daughter’s life.

My daughter, Carla Barresi, was a senior at Towson Catholic when it suddenly closed in July 2009.

This closure devastated Carla and my entire family. Realizing that Carla needed to complete her senior year, we made the decision to attend Maryvale Preparatory School. Our initial visit to Maryvale was incredible, everyone from Sister of Notre Dame de Namur Shawn Maguire, headmistress, to the rest of the Maryvale staff were unbelievable. Immediately, Catherine Cunnane, director of counseling, began the process for admission into college with Carla. She diligently worked with Carla and me.

Because of both Carla and Mrs. Cunnane’s hard work, Carla has been accepted into her college choices. Carla has also received scholarships to help with her endeavors. Maryvale has definitely prepared Carla for the next academic step in her life. Again I would like to thank everyone at Maryvale Preparatory School for all their kindness and hard work, at such a difficult time in our lives.
