Please note: We are launching a new website in September, and not all information that is typically updated over the summer will be up-to-date until the new site goes live. We will try to make sure essential beginning-of-the-year information is posted, but please bear with us. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Fathers' Club President Mr. Drew Dubray writes...

We had a fun event with over 80 participants, chaired by this year's Junior School Representative Bob Shallenberger and Fathers' Club Vice President Doug Drysdale. This year, many thanks go out to Form II Fathers' Club Ambassadors and their sons, along with Mary Rhodes in the Development Office, for their help with set up, running the tournament and answering questions about their Priory experience. Our Form I Communications Rep., Jody O'Sullivan, was there with his son Michael. Also in attendance were our Headmaster, Father Gregory, and Principal, Dr. Jared Rashford.

Have a great start your school year and welcome to the Priory family!

This Saturday's varsity football game against Soldan will be played at Priory at 10 a.m., rather than the originally scheduled road game later that day. This change has been reflected on the football schedule.


To All Members of the Priory Community,

The Priory Alumni Board announces that the Grant’s Farm Party previously scheduled for the evening of September 27, 2014 is postponed for this year. This will allow the Board to explore a new format to generate renewed interest and increased participation. The Alumni Board will continue to host all of the other events on the 2014-2015 calendar. I hope to see you all at the Homecoming Barbeque on October 11th as we cheer our athletic teams on to victory. I am also looking forward to the Alumni Holiday Party on November 28th. The Holiday party continues to grow and is a great opportunity to unwind with other Alumni after Thanksgiving. If you have any questions regarding any of these events, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Stephanie KirschIf you haven’t been at Priory in the last couple weeks, a new face will greet you at the front desk on the first day of school. Stephanie Kirsch, our new receptionist, and her husband Barry, our new maintenance manager, recently moved to St. Louis from South Lyon, Michigan. She takes over for Stasia Frenzel, who is now the school’s Registrar and assisting the College Counseling Office.

Stephanie grew up in Michigan and attended Ferris State University in Big Rapids with a degree in business administration. She’s also been taking graduate-level classes through the University of Phoenix, and says she’s close to obtaining her master’s degree in education and curriculum.

Before coming to Priory, she worked for the National Heritage Academies, a charter school organization in the Grand Rapids area. Over the course of 13 years, she worked at 3 different elementary schools as a secretary, office administrator and registrar.

Since moving to St. Louis, Stephanie and Barry have enjoyed biking on the various local trails. “We’ve biked a different trail every weekend,” she says. They’ve also used Groupons to learn their way around the city though its restaurants.

They have two children, Amanda, 18, and Stephen, 21. Amanda graduated from high school a year early, and is now in the army, stationed at Ft. Sam. She is also studying radiology. Stephen also served in the army, and since he is now retired, he’s working as a barista at Starbucks and starting online classes through Arizona State University in psychology.

Stephanie says she’s excited to meet the faculty, staff and families as everyone returns to campus over the next couple weeks. “I’ve been amazed at the dedication of the staff I’ve met so far,” she says. “Everybody’s been so nice and helpful, which is great after being someplace else for 13 years and having just moved to a new city and taken a new job.”
