Greetings Mother Catherine Academy Community! Though I have met a few members of this beautiful family throughout my first weeks here as principal of Mother Catherine Academy, I would like to formally introduce myself and my family.


My name is Tony Wojt. My wife Stephanie and I have three children and have moved to Saint Mary’s County from Fayetteville, North Carolina. My diverse educational and professional experience ranges from the public and the private sectors to Pre-K through Post-secondary levels. I have over 15 years of classroom experience as teacher and leader. I began my education in Catholic School in Alpena, Michigan. I recently have moved from Fayetteville, North Carolina where I taught in both private and public schools. I also am an instructor at the post-secondary level. I hold a Bachelor’s of Arts in Education, a Master of Education, and a Master’s Certificate in Educational Leadership. I enjoy participating in parish events and ministries. I am an enthusiastic Catholic and share my enthusiasm about the teachings of Christ with all. As a member of the local Catholic community, a parent, and a principal I strive to promote Mother Catherine Academy as a school we can believe in.


I believe Catholic education creates communities of faith, knowledge and service. Catholic schools strive to nurture each child in a Catholic environment so they may reach their potential spiritually, academically, and socially. Catholic schools create a community with discourse in order to apply the teachings, themes, and messages of the Gospel to our ever-changing society. Communities of knowledge possess a strong tradition of high academic standards. Catholic schools must maintain a balance of “best practices” rich in traditional Catholic values and incorporate 21st century skills. I love the commitment to the values and mission of our faith that unites the communities I have served. Catholic schools are the heart of the Church’s mission in this country.


In my brief time here so far, I see this same commitment at work at Mother Catherine Academy. It is a school that has a long tradition rooted in Southern Maryland, and an even brighter future in this growing community. I look forward to meeting you and working together to bring our children, and ourselves, closer to Christ.


God Bless,


Tony Wojt
