Mayfield Senior School Students Return to Campus, Are Challenged to “Reach Beyond Themselves”

Head of School Rita McBride with Mayfield Senior School students.

On Tuesday, Sept. 7, Mayfield Senior School welcomed students back to campus with an all school assembly that included a prayer service and the traditional class lunches. Head of School Rita McBride welcomed students during a fun-filled assembly where they were introduced to new members of the community and treated to a virtual tour of the campus that highlighted changes and improvements made during the summer. The students returned to a campus that is completely WiFi accessible.

“It is always a thrill to welcome a new and talented constellation of students to our Mayfield community,” McBride said. “Our excellent and highly experienced faculty not only provide an education that will open doors to a successful college career, but equip our students with the character and life skills to achieve their dreams. Today is indeed a special day because we welcome the extraordinary young women who have chosen to pursue a Holy Child education at Mayfield Senior School.”

New classes this year include: Law and Trial Advocacy, Journalism for the 21st Century and AP Music Theory. Mayfield Senior School is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for young women grades 9–12. The rigorous academic program includes 23 Advanced Placement and Honors courses. The curriculum is underscored by a philosophy of educating the “whole child.” Mayfield’s Conservatory for the Arts offers advanced study in five artistic disciplines: creative writing, dance, photography, visual arts and vocal music.
