Meet Your Admission Director

Kate Borgeson, Associate Director of Admission for Middle School & Residential Life

Kate Borgeson fell in love with the energy she felt from the students and the teachers the first time she visited St. Anne’s-Belfield. “Every independent school has its own distinct personality,” she says. “Here, there’s so much care and compassion vibrating in the classrooms in the hallways. The students are engaged, and everyone is so kind.” Mrs. Borgeson is excited to introduce that vibrancy and energy to prospective families and students.

From the School’s location in Charlottesville to the academic program, Mrs. Borgeson says St. Anne’s has a lot to offer students, especially Residential Life students. “Boarding students can genuinely connect on a deeper level with advisors and teachers, and with day students too. It’s a special experience to go to school surrounded by people who are invested in your success and want to support your learning.” 

Kate Borgeson joins St. Anne’s from The Wyndcroft School in Pottstown, PA, where she served as director of enrollment management. Previous roles include serving at The Hill School and on the community relations team for the Buffalo Bills. She has experienced independent schools through many different lenses, having been a senior administrator, advisor, dorm parent, JV lacrosse coach, Life Skills teacher, and coordinator of programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Student Philanthropy Council, and Equestrian. She lives at Woodberry Forest School where her husband, Bowen, is on the faculty, along with their three children. Mrs. Borgeson is a graduate of the Buffalo Seminary and has a degree in Fine Arts from St. Lawrence University.

Mrs. Borgeson is thrilled to work with Middle School and Residential Life families and help them find the right fit for their whole family.

Tristan Kishonis, Associate Director of Upper School Admission and Outreach

The resounding sense of belief at St. Anne’s-Belfield that this is a place of possibility; that our School is a place where students can identify their passions, where they will be challenged, make mistakes, and be supported every step of the way. Individually and collectively, this community articulates a desire to help students pursue their own originality. Serving as an ambassador for a place that lives these values is an opportunity I’m thankful for every day.

The best part of my work is being a fan. I get to celebrate and support the efforts of students and colleagues every day. More specifically, I find joy in sharing stories about the ways that our students, faculty, and staff invest their time and energy — our community members do such incredible and fascinating work!
