Sr. Lydia’s philosophy of education can be summed up in her own words: “The goal of preparing students spiritually, academically, physically and socially is truly a team effort and is accomplished by a caring and dedicated staff who recognize and respond to the individual needs of students.”

Cheerful, meticulous, energetic, Sr. Lydia fulfilled her vocation as a Dominican Sister with complete self-giving. She epitomized the aspiration of one of her favorite writers, Dag Hammarskjöld when he said: To be free, to be able to stand up and leave everything behind without looking back—to say yes.
