Wendy Kwitny
School Relations Manager

Wendy’s background in the arts and her experiences leading poetry workshops and spearheading a successful grade-school chess club set the stage for her professional interest in education and enrichment programs. After substitute teaching in New York City public schools and witnessing the discrepancies in academic opportunities, Wendy became a proponent of the mission of Catholic schools. Having graduated from Bennington College with a degree in English literature and provided her sons with the best educational opportunities available, she‘s grateful for the opportunity to pay it forward.
