Principal’s Message

As principal of St. Angela Merici School, I personally welcome you to our school website. St. Angela Merici has provided our community with a quality, Catholic education serving prekindergarten through seventh grade students in the heart of Metairie for over 50 years. Our educational philosophy focuses on fostering a strong relationship with Jesus Christ, academic excellence and service to others in a strong faith community.

Central to the philosophy of St. Angela Merici School is the commitment to the sacredness of each child. Fostering curiosity, creativity, critical thinking and the spirit of collaboration at all ages leads students on a journey of lifelong learning.

Our strong sense of community is evident at the start of each day during morning assembly. Students participate by leading prayer and pledge, sharing accomplishments and celebrating birthdays together as a school community. Student recognition and opportunities to lead provide a sense of self-confidence and leadership in students of all ages.

At St. Angela Merici, we provide a comprehensive education where every student has the ability to grow intellectually, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  We invite you to come and see how we make a difference in the lives of our students. Please call and set up a tour soon.

In Christ,
Paige Bennett
Principal, St. Angela Merici School
