A Catholic Girls School in the Benedictine Tradition

St. Scholastica's Feast Day Celebration

Cissy LaForge
An annual tradition at the Academy is the celebration of the Feast of St. Scholastica.  Combining the pillars of prayer and community, mass was held at St. Peter Church.  At the conclusion of the mass, girls who are legacies, meaning either their mother or grandmother is a graduate of the Academy, were recognized in a pinning ceremony.  Fourteen girls were honored. Following tradition, a family style lunch was served in the SSA dining room, with a team of mom volunteers serving a delicious meal to all students, faculty, staff and guests.
