MEET THE Northwest Catholic School FACULTY & STAFF

A Note from Our Principal

Hello Families! Can you believe that it’s already the 2021-22 school year? We are so excited to be back in person, and can’t wait to begin the school year. Last year was full of surprises, but we made it. The resilience of our families and staff are astounding, and I am grateful for each member of our small school, big family. 

This year, we have a lot of great things in store! We are reintroducing Art, Music, and Physical Education courses for all grades, and resuming partnerships with organizations such as Pearls for Teen Girls, Sharp Literacy, Reading Corps and more. We’re also welcoming new organizations such as the Cristo Rey Work Study Program and expanding our Boys and Girls Club partnership. 

Northwest Catholic is absolutely committed to the education of our scholars so that we can transform our community. We are grateful for the opportunity to nurture the growth of our scholars, and we are excited about where Northwest Catholic is headed. 

This year, we are Changing the Narrative. Far too often, Black and Brown students are counted out; the assumption is that they either can’t or don’t want to learn. NWC knows that this is the furthest from the truth, and we’re proving it with a focus on academic rigor, data and social emotional learning. Northwest Catholic School will be a 5 star school in 2 years, because our kids deserve a 5 star school, and so does our community. 

Thank you for trusting us with your children on this educational journey. There is nowhere to go but up!

To Greater Academic Success, 

Ms. LaQuasha Logan, MA, ED.S

Proud Principal
