SMDA’s excellence


To The Editor:

What a treasure our community has in St. Marguerite D’Youville Academy!

For many years now I have been privileged to witness first-hand the wonderful formation and education that takes place at SMDA. As rector of St. Mary’s Cathedral for seven years, and now as bishop of the Diocese of Ogdensburg for just over three years, I can testify to the excellence of our programs at SMDA.

What always impresses me is the unparalleled dedication of our teachers and staff, and the faith and value-centered learning that takes place at SMDA. Reading, writing and arithmetic, and yes, technology, but also what underpins it all: an understanding of God’s goodness, God’s constant love for each person, and our call to serve in His name. Being rooted and formed in this truth will help our youngsters throughout their whole life!

I encourage families to take a look at what St. Marguerite D’Youville Academy has to offer to your child(ren) and your family. Visit SMDA; speak with Celina Burns, our principal, and take a tour of an amazing school. You will not be disappointed!

In Christ,

Most Reverend Terry R. LaValley


Diocese of Ogdensburg
