Anna, Class of 2014:

My time spent at Saratoga Central Catholic was extremely influential in shaping the person I am today. People always say “If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life”. Luckily, I was fortunate enough to have a high school teacher that helped to make my dream come true. Junior year, Mr. McGee brought our graphic design class to a local leather shop that had an in house graphics team. I instantly fell in love with the graphic design field.

Whether it be portfolio preparation, learning technical drawing skills, or even life lessons, Mr. McGee has been and still is always there for me. He is a teacher that I will remember forever and someone I will always be grateful to for shaping my passions into a reality.

 

Mary, Class of 2015:

The biggest cheerleaders in my life have been able to see my triumphs. Lifting me up and believing me in times of darkness and doubt, they always saw light and potential. Mr. McGee is just one of my many supporters, influencing me beyond my time at SCC. I can easily envision myself back in the art room: the smell of cinnamon coffee and paint wafting through the air, the sound of laughter and maybe some Celtic music, the latest projects depicting cherry blossom trees, still lives, chimeras or monsters strewn across the tables and students hanging out during their lunch hour.

I spent so many moments there, in that happy place, listening to Mr. McGee’s stories and seeing his latest artwork or videos. There, I learned many of the fundamental skills I still use in my photography and video work today and was encouraged to pursue independent studies aimed towards developing my photography skills and starting a literary art magazine called SCC Kaleidoscope. I can still hear Mr. McGee sharing the Irish Blessing in class or during morning assembly. It brings a smile to my face just to imagine. As the past unfolds in my mind, it’s echo and presence permeate, just as he does.

 

Kyle, Class of 2016:

The education I received from Saratoga Central Catholic has helped me greatly in college, while working towards a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Because I took chemistry, biology, AP biology, and physics at SCC I have noticed myself recalling a lot of important information my SCC teachers taught while taking those same classes at Utica College. Becoming a SCC Peer Minister has also provided me with great leadership and social skills to work with different age groups, I am realizing now how much that will help me later on in my career.

 

Kevin, Class of 2018:

At the time, I underestimated the quality of the education at Saratoga Central Catholic, but looking back now as a Freshman at Clarkson University I believe that SCC has well prepared me academically and athletically.  It also provided me a good base in leadership to thrive in ROTC.

Letter from Superintendent Virgiglio: April 3, 2020

Dear Saratoga Central Catholic School Community, During these difficult times, I am pleased and honored to be able to share good news with you. The national search for a principal has yielded a tremendously talented administrator who grew up in the Albany Diocese, has served as an educator across the country, and is returning home to lead Saratoga Catholic Central School going forward. Please join me in welcoming Joe Kilmade as the new principal of Saratoga Central Catholic School for the 2020-21 school year. Mr. Kilmade is a Capital region native, a product of our system of Catholic schools, and has more than a decade of experience as a teacher and administrator at Catholic schools across several states. Most recently, he served as principal of Ascension Catholic School, a school with more than 300 students in St. Louis, MO. Mr. Kilmade is a graduate of Villanova University with a bachelor’s degree in English, and received his master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Notre Dame.

Letter from Principal Kondratowicz: April 3, 2020

Dear Parents, We are all dealing with difficult times as we live in an environment affected by COVID-19. Our school is closed. Most of us are at home. Our students are not able to participate in many activities they normally do. Teachers, students, and parents are working through the problems associated with continuing the educational process online because of the current conditions. This is new to us. There is a huge learning curve that all of us will be navigating together. We will get better at it with experience. The current situation is creating anxiety for everyone. We need to be patient with each other. We must communicate our concerns to each other. It is particularly important for parents, teachers, and administrators to recognize and listen to the feelings of our students. This is a particularly uncertain and challenging time for them. The students need to know that the adults in their lives will help them to meet these challenges. The third quarter marking period is ending on April 8th. In observance of Easter Break, we will temporarily suspend online instruction beginning Holy Thursday, April 9, through Friday, April 17th. The teachers and I recognize the unusual circumstances we have all been under these […]

Pink Day 2019

On Friday, October 18, 2019 the Saratoga Central Catholic Volleyball program sponsored their 11th Annual Saints Spike Out Cancer Match and Fundraiser. They took time to pause between the JV and Varsity matches and recognized survivors and those presently fighting breast cancer. In preparation for the event, the SCC Volleyball team hosted a “Pink” dress down day, bake sales, and the sale of breast cancer awareness items. Pink ribbons were purchased and hung in the gym in honor of breast cancer survivors, those presently fighting and those who have lost their battle. This year, we started a “Sisters Collaboration” with our sister elementary schools: St. Mary’s School in Ballston Spa and St. Clements School in Saratoga Springs. Each Sister school created a “Pink Ribbon” photo and raised money. All proceeds were donated to the Mollie Wilmot Radiology Oncology Department at Saratoga Hospital.  This money will directly help patients with rides to treatment, wigs and scarfs. Saratoga Catholic raised $1603.35, St. Clement’s $700 and St. Mary’s $550 for a total donation of $2,853.35!!
