Celebrating St. Cecilia's Day

December 07, 2021
By Mariana Valle, Student Reporter, Journalist & Roland Sternfels, Co-editor

Chelsea Academy honors St. Cecilia, the patron Saint of music, with an annual music contest between our houses: Pole, Roper, Colet, and Fisher. Our St. Cecilia's competition was a huge success this year with all the houses putting a lot of time and effort into their acts to wow the judges. To everyone's surprise, a boy's house, Colet, took the win this year with an impressive show of a singing quintet, violin playing, poetry, and some beautiful piano pieces. Everyone who attended was impressed with the amount of skill and effort put forth by all the houses and each performance was met with considerable applause. We are so proud of our talented Chelsea students.

Mariam Kaltenbach has studied as a foreign exchange student at Chelsea during 9th and 10th grade. Originally from Lörrach in Germany, Mariam decided to follow in her sister’s footsteps and attend Chelsea in 2020. Mariam enjoyed studying French, Physical Science, and English. She found that “the education and teachers at Chelsea are amazing.” Some of her most memorable experiences involved exploring the Shenandoah Valley through school-led outdoor adventures. Mariam’s favorite thing about Chelsea is that “everyone is kind and there are great friendships that are real and true.” Our students and faculty wish her the very best as she travels back home to Germany this December to finish high school.
