Meet Our Principal

Mrs. Denise Ball

Mrs. Denise Ball is a certified teacher with over twenty years of experience within the world of education. This is her sixth year in
administration. She received her Master of Education from the University of Detroit Mercy with a focus on curriculum and instruction and was inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, the Jesuit Honor Society.  When time permits, Denise likes to spend time outdoors with her family, write academic eBooks and develop professional development programs.

Mrs. Ball is an Army veteran and has been married to a fabulous husband for twenty-three years.  She has two joy-filled children, Nathaniel and Claire. Denise’s strong faith in Christ encourages her to live an intentional life, in the moment. It has always been her way to take the path less chosen AND it has made all the difference! She feels blessed to be a part of such an amazing Christ-centered community like St. Augustine and looks forward to the many adventures Christ has planned for her here.
