Our Dean of Middle School

Dear Parents and Students,

As we embark on our inaugural year at the newly formed AHA Middle School, it is both a privilege and a pleasure to serve in a leadership position as its Dean.  I bring with me 20+ years in Catholic education, having served in many different capacities at each level from elementary through higher Ed.  It is very exciting and challenging to begin a brand new program while meshing it with the long lasting legacy that is AHA. We are richly blessed to become part of the SSND tradition.

We begin putting our best foot forward with an enthusiastic, qualified faculty who are ready to guide our students through the challenges of their middle school years. In keeping with our rich AHA Catholic educational tradition, our middle school program is designed to meet each student at her existing competence level, create enough challenge to inspire her to reach beyond her comfort level and continue to stimulate her appetite just enough so she strives to compete with her last best effort whether it be in academics, fine arts, performing arts, athletics, or any of the many opportunities that will be presented to her throughout our programs.

Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger, Foundress of the School Sisters of Notre Dame wrote, “Love is the sign by which the world will know we believe in Jesus.”  This guiding theme sharpens our daily focus as we offer each of our families, staff and students opportunities to be a living sign for others…showing acceptance, kindness, compassion, expressing gratitude and the love of Jesus as we go about our daily lives both on and off campus.

Thank you for choosing to be part of our inaugural year, partnering with us in the great tradition that is our AHA legacy.  I am excited to be on this journey with each of you!


Peace & Blessings,


Traci Koval
