Student Life

A Letter from the President

Dear Saint Basil Community,

When I first visited Saint Basil Academy as an eighth-grader, it truly stood out among other schools. The compassionate environment comprised of the faculty and students never made me feel like just a visitor. From that first day, I was welcomed in and treated as equal. Now as a senior, I realize just how beneficial the environment itself has been to my overall personal development. Because I was welcomed so genuinely, I felt more comfortable and confident in myself to jump right in and get involved. At Saint Basil, there are so many opportunities for girls both in and out of the classroom. Whether it be sports, art, academia, or service, there is a place for everyone to shine and be heard.

The faculty at Saint Basil make it a priority to help each individual develop to her full potential. Without the guidance of my teachers, I would not have had the opportunity to attend a writing and journalism workshop through the New England Center for Investigative Reporting at Boston University. Through this experience, I was able to work alongside students from across the United States and around the world. I even had the chance to interview the United States Senator Elizabeth Warren. I am so grateful that my teachers recommended this opportunity as it allowed me to utilize my Basil knowledge and leadership in a totally new dynamic.

As I prepare to leave Saint Basil, I am empowered by the faith and trust in God I cultivated here. I believe that having faith in God is also having faith in yourself. When we have faith in ourselves, we can be better students, better leaders, and better friends.

Every day I walk into the Academy, I continue to feel uplifted by the energy and support of the girls around me. I welcome you to explore all there is to offer at 711 Fox Chase Road and open yourself up to a transformational experience.  On behalf of our sisterhood, I thank you for your support of the Basil community.
