Welcome Dr. Dempf, New Head of School

The Academy community welcomes Susan Dempf, Ph.D. as our new Head of School. Formerly the Director of the High School at Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart in Miami, Dr. Dempf is a native of Upstate New York and was educated in the Sacred Heart tradition, having graduated from The Doane Stuart School in Albany. In addition to a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and a Master’s in Administration, she earned her Ph.D. in Teaching and Curriculum from Syracuse University. 

Dr. Dempf states that “St. Charles holds a very special place in the hearts and minds of Sacred Heart students, alumni and educators across North America.” She has spoken of the transformative experience of being at the Academy, walking the halls where St. Rose Philippine tread, and visiting the beautiful Shrine.

We look forward to Dr. Dempf’s installation as Head of School in a ceremony during the Mass of the Holy Spirit on Friday, Sept. 1, at 9:30 a.m. in Rauch Memorial Gym. All are welcome to attend.
