Students – I hope this message finds you well-rested and excited for the academic year ahead. As your proud Headteacher, I want to extend a warm and hearty welcome to each and every one of you for the 2023-2024 academic year. 

After 30 years in education and participating in 30 first days of school, it remains one of my favorite days of the year .

First and foremost, I’d like to take a moment to celebrate the tremendous successes we achieved together during the past academic year. We witnessed remarkable academic achievements and personal growth among our student body, making us all immensely proud. 

I trust that you had an enjoyable and rejuvenating summer break, and I hope you’re returning to school bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to tackle the exciting challenges and opportunities that await you in the coming year. The summer break is not only a time to relax but also a time for self-discovery and reflection, and I’m confident that you’ve returned with a renewed sense of purpose. 

Speaking of achievements, I must highlight the exceptional college acceptances that our students earned last year, including admission to prestigious institutions like Brown University. Acceptances like these are a reminder that with determination, hard work, and the support of our dedicated faculty, you too can secure acceptances into some of the most amazing colleges and universities in the world. 

I have no doubt that this year’s cohort will continue to shine, excel, and make us all proud. 

Let’s make the 2023-2024 academic year one for the books! 

Warm regards, 

Kathleen Sheridan 

Head of School, CATS Academy Boston
