We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Candace Stracener will become the next principal of Borromeo Academy. She will begin on July 1, 2022, the same day that Dr. Hopson assumes her role as associate superintendent for the Diocese of Kansas City-Saint Joseph School Office.


Mrs. Stracener grew up in northeast Missouri. After graduating college and marrying her high school sweetheart, they moved to Kansas City where their family has expanded with two elementary-aged children. Candace has taught in both public and parochial school systems and is especially gifted in early childhood education. She currently teaches first grade at Saint Andrew the Apostle School in Gladstone.


The selection committee was particularly impressed with her maternal instincts and compassionate character. They had a strong and immediate sense that she will be a good match for our academy as we continue to flourish in the classical model of educating scholars and grow as a family of faith at Borromeo Academy and Saint Charles Parish.

COVID-19 Protocols Update

Mask wearing at Borromeo is not required and is optional at this time. We will evaluate the data each week and notify you of any needed change. Please help us by monitoring your scholar’s health each day.

If they are not feeling well, let us know. If your scholar has COVID-19 symptoms, please get them tested. Our goal is to keep the academy open every day. The way we can do that is to make sure those who are here are healthy and feel 100%

Our families love us

We love St. Charles School because not only are the children taught the faith of the church, but ALSO that faith and love is modeled by the teachers, faculty and staff, by their actions to the student body and community.
