WEBSTER — Kerry Kiniorski and her husband, Mike Epstein, had never considered Catholic education for their children.
Then their daughter Abigail began to experience significant anxiety as a second-grader in a large public-school setting. After hearing positive buzz about St. Rita School in the family’s home town of Webster, Abigail and her parents visited the school in the middle of the 2012-13 school year.
“Everybody was so welcoming. They took their time with us; they made me feel like our questions were valued,” Kiniorski recalled.
Abigail enrolled at St. Rita within a week, adjusting quickly and positively to her new environment.
“We really watched her grow here,” her mother said, noting that Abigail since has gained strong leadership and public-speaking skills.
