Catholic Central warmly welcomes its newest member of our staff, Kelly McSweeney. Mrs. McSweeney joins us as the new admissions manager, taking over David Sofran’s position as he moves to our athletic department as assistant athletic director.
Mrs. McSweeney comes to us with an extensive background in education and in parochial school admissions. In her former position, she managed admissions for Mercy High School, where she is a proud alumna. Her interest in and connection to Catholic Central has been long-standing as she has brothers-in-law, a nephew, and her husband who are all alumni of our great school. She strongly believes in the importance of Catholic education and the life-long bond and relationships it has fostered for herself and her family members. Recently, she experienced first-hand Catholic Central’s admission experience as a parent when her son went through our admissions process. He now joins us as a freshman and Mrs. McSweeney will use both her knowledge as a parent and admissions manager to help parents and students feel at ease through the application process.
“I am looking forward to being part of the community,” said Mrs. McSweeney. “I think it is such a great environment – everyone is passionate and enthusiastic. I am looking forward to being involved and going to football games and learning more about the school as my boys go through Catholic Central, too.”
Mrs. McSweeney is responsible for overseeing our shadow day program, where we invite potential students in 7th and 8th grade to shadow sophomore students for the day. She will also coordinate tours with families and be a point of contact for those interested in applying to Catholic Central.
“In this role, it’s the relationships that are so important. I look forward to making those connections and forming those long-lasting relationships and seeing these boys become young, accomplished men,” said Mrs. McSweeney.
Prior to working in admissions, Mrs. McSweeney taught 5th grade for six years at St. Fabian in Farmington Hills. A proud Spartan, she earned a BA in Elementary Education and a MA in Curriculum and Teaching from Michigan State University.
Let’s give a warm welcome to Mrs. McSweeney!
