Policies and Protocols

“It is not sufficient that Jesus Christ be formed in us —
He must be recognized in our conduct.”

– Foundress Catherine McAuley


Lead Through Integrity

Our rules, regulations and policies are intended to create a safe environment, to help establish order in the school, to foster mutual respect, and to guide students in their development of a sense of responsibility and accountability. Read more about our policies and rules of conduct in the MMA Student Handbook.

As a school community, we have made the decision to provide the SafeStudents Online program to our families. Parents are able to monitor their children’s social media activity for inappropriate or potentially dangerous posts and will receive alerts to help them take action when necessary.

SafeStudents Online balances protection with privacy to encourage collaboration and communication between parents and children. The cloud-based solution helps parents keep their children safe from online threats such as cyber-bullying, online predators, and damaged reputations. Parents never need to ask for their children’s passwords, and the online activity is monitored privately by parents, with the school having no access to the content.

We are happy to announce the launch of the “Safe2Say Something” (S2SS) anonymous reporting system. This program, which is mandated under PA state law (Act 44), instructs students, teachers, and administrators how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others – and to then Say Something to a trusted adult or to use an anonymous S2SS reporting system.
