Principal Returning to Florida
Mercy High School has announced that Principal Sarah Regan is leaving at the end of this school year to pursue educational opportunities in Florida. A search committee is being formed to find her successor.
In her five years at Mercy, Regan has made a significant impact on the school technologically, educationally, strategically, and professionally.
As the architect of the school’s Strategic Plan, she facilitated discussions, coordinated input from all stakeholders and developed the plan complete with goals and objectives that guide the mission of the school today.
Under her leadership, Mercy has embraced technology at all levels. Examples include all students carrying iPads, Naviance being used for college admissions support, the implementation of a new Student Information System (SIS), and expanding use of Renweb to enhance work efficiency and communication.
Regan also coordinated the development of a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) curriculum and adopted formalized lesson planning. During her time at the school , an Academic Success Center for students of all ability levels was expanded and she helped to secure the John Baylor “OnToCollege” ACT Prep program for all students in all classes beginning next fall.
A passionate advocate for education, she has been a principal or assistant principal in high school for more than 22 years. Prior to her Mercy assignment she was Principal at Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School in Spring Hill, Florida.
“Sarah has made an indelible imprint on our school and its commitment to superb education. For that, we are truly grateful. Regan was always committed to advancing the education of our Mercy Girls,” said Sr. Delores Hannon, RSM, President.
