Dear Holy Angels Catholic School Community,

Meet Principal Nicole Merz

Meet Principal Nicole Merz

It is with a humble heart that I write this letter to you as the new Principal of Holy Angels Catholic School.  As most of you know, I have served the Holy Angels’ school community since 2015 in multiple capacities-counselor, administrator, instructional coach and member of the Holy Angels family. We have come a long way since my arrival four years ago and I know we will go much further. 

As the Assistant Principal these past two years, I have had the honor of working alongside our former Principal and Holy Angels’ alumni, Mr. Sean Stalling, who greatly contributed to each of our lives. I have had the opportunity to watch our school transform into a safe, loving, thriving, and academically rigorous school community.

Now, as he embarks upon to his next phase of leadership, it is my goal to continue to build upon all things that make us great--a family of Angels, and a community of scholars.

Since my selection and appointment as Principal by the Archdiocese of Chicago, I have had the pleasure of furthering my existing work with many you. It is because of our shared beliefs that my mission is to continue strengthening those areas which always keeps students at the center.  Holy Angels has been, and will always be, a school community that focuses on high expectations, spreading kindness and love, as well as developing students into the future leaders of the world.

As we move forward, we will continue the Holy Angels’ tradition of developing the HACS core principles of leadership, scholarship, faith, service, and virtue. These values enrich us as Angels, promote teaching and learning and ultimately lay the foundation for future generations.

Over the next few weeks you will receive communication regarding August’s Parent-Student Orientation, the upcoming Principal’s Coffee, and the first Principal’s Newsletter of the 2019-2020 school year.  I look forward to an amazing year and working closely with all of you. In the interim, should you need to speak with me, please contact the main office at 773-624-0727 or email me at

Thank you and God Bless,

Nicole Merz
