Hans and Catherine Braun, Emma ’14, Heloise ’17
We joined the WMA community in 2010 with the initiation of our daughter, Emma, into fifth grade. On first visiting WMA, we immediately felt that the school was a perfect fit for our family. We both had attended Catholic schools and appreciated the dedication to education, values and respect for others that Catholic schools embody. WMA not only encompassed these qualities, but we saw that there was something special in the student culture. We found an environment that also promotes independence, self-assuredness and self-empowerment, qualities we feel are very important in our children’s development. In September 2011, Emma was joined at WMA by her little sister Héloïse. As was the case with Emma, one could clearly see the positive influence WMA has had on Héloïse. WMA is a very special school that is laying a solid foundation that will serve our daughters for the rest of their lives.
