"Whatever your work is, put your heart into it as done for the Lord...
- Colossians 3:23-24
When I started my career as a teacher in 2004, I knew there was a bigger purpose to my calling as an educator. It was through my ordinary life chores that I heard the Lord whisper His plan for a school.
As I kept listening and following, allowing God to guide me through this adventure, He led me in 2016 to found Academia Stella Maris, a school where parents are the primary educators of their children. It was in the basement of Saint Catherine of Siena Parish that ASM saw its beginning. We offered workshops for homeschoolers one day a week from September 2016 to June 2018.
As I was walking with God through this adventure, day-by-day, month-by-month, He led ASM in September 2018 to Limoges to our present location. We have been blessed with this beautiful environment since then, offering one-of-a-kind full-time and hybrid programs.
Academia Stella Maris offers an environment where the Holy Spirit is invited and where the beauty of the Liturgy and the Eucharist is presented. It is also a place where the children can identify their God-given gifts and where we instill in our students the truth that they can change the world with God by their side.
This is our home. This is God's home. This is where children are the "Salt of the Earth and the Light of the World". This is Academia Stella Maris!
In His Service,
ASM exists to assist Catholic parents in the education of their children by offering flexible, faithful, bilingual learning opportunities for both full-time and hybrid school families.
ASM envisions a student-centred learning environment inspired by God’s truth which promotes the development of the whole child: in their academic, spiritual, physical and emotional growth.
ASM aims to support each student along their path to academic and personal success through the development of their intellect and God-given gifts while promoting virtue and strong character as the foundation of their purpose-filled life in Christ.
