New Administration


Mrs. Ann O’Hagan- Cordes ’84 – Principal

Mrs. O’Hagan-Cordes has spent her entire professional life ministering in Sisters of St. Joseph schools, previously serving at Stella Maris High School as a teacher for many years, then Assistant Principal for seven years before returning to The Mary Louis Academy as Assistant Principal of Academics in 2010.

An alumna of TMLA who truly embodies the spirit of the school, she is passionate about preserving the educational mission of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph and the commitment to academic excellence.

“Ann’s personal experience with TMLA as a student, a parent, and as administrator makes her uniquely suited to her new role as principal,” said Sister Helen Kearney, C.S.J., President.
