From the Director of Instruction

Dear prospective and current Waverly families,

     I am delighted to join the Waverly family as the Director of Instruction.  I imagine that the roller coaster of a tween girl’s life has had you thinking about what type of environment will encourage and empower your daughter.  School can, and should be, so much more than a place to learn academics.  It is the place where girls get to try all sorts of new activities, and have experiences that build confidence and develop a girl socially and emotionally.


     Our learning environment will ignite your daughter’s passions, help her discover her unique gifts and pique her intellectual curiosity. Waverly provides your daughter the opportunity to become a young woman of substance in a safe, nurturing setting.


     Know that I, and the entire Waverly family, are committed to a school of excellence that individually serves each and every girl.  If you are looking for a place where your daughter will become who you know she can be, Waverly is for you.


     I look forward to meeting each and every one of you as we travel with you and your daughter on the road to success.  Our door is open and we encourage you to become an integral part of our Waverly family.  If I can be of any assistance, please contact me at (904) 647-8552 or by email at .
