Sarah Cullum

Notre Dame Academy announced that Sarah Cullum is its new principal, effective July 1. Cullum brings fifteen years of experience with Toledo Area Catholic Schools to Notre Dame, most recently serving for six years as principal of Rosary Cathedral Catholic School. Under her leadership, Rosary Cathedral Catholic School improved its infrastructure, integrated technology into every classroom and built strong community connections.

“Sarah has a proven record of innovation and commitment to Catholic education that will ensure NDA continues to carry out the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame and provides the highest level of academics,” said Kim Grilliot, President of Notre Dame Academy.

“I feel called to lead students forward with Gospel values,” said Cullum. “I look forward to continuing the important work of the Sisters of Notre Dame and impacting these young women on an even higher level. NDA’s strong sense of community has led to its successes, so building meaningful and positive connections with NDA students, families, faculty, staff and alumnae will be a top priority for me.”

Cullum has principal and teaching licenses. She holds a Master’s of Educational Leadership and Supervision from the University of Notre Dame as well as a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toledo. She, her husband and son are members of Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral parish.
