Faculty Feature: Angela Peters Murphy

Angela joined Roycemore in July of 2021. Prior to working at Roycemore, Angela worked as an educational consultant in the Chicagoland area, assisting families with their search for the most appropriate educational setting for their children. In this role, she built and fostered relationships with most private schools in the greater Chicago area and nationally.  She started her professional career as a legislative counsel on Capitol Hill and as a federal lobbyist, in the DC Area. Angela has served on school boards and committees in both the Baltimore and Chicago areas for the past 15 years.

As Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, Angela emphasizes Roycemore’s Portrait of a Graduate, which focuses on the essential skills that students develop throughout their education at Roycemore in the areas of Scholarship, Citizenship, and Emotional Intelligence. During the Admissions process, Angela focuses on the whole child – their strengths, where they may need additional support – and how Roycemore’s academic, social, and extracurricular offerings align with supporting the growth of that individual student.

Roycemore prides itself on meeting students where they are, accepting them for who they are, and differentiating learning experiences to help them reach their full potential. Roycemore is proud to be one of the most diverse independent schools in Illinois, and highly ranked for overall experience, academics, faculty, and extracurricular opportunities. At Roycemore, 100% of students are accepted to colleges and universities across the country and around the world – from small liberal arts schools to engineering schools, large public institutions, and Ivy League schools.

One of Angela’s greatest strengths is building relationships with families and that is at the core of what makes the Roycemore community so special. It is her goal to make the admissions process as seamless as possible for families while making sure that the best interest of the student is always at the center of decision making.

Roycemore’s Priority Deadline for Admission is quickly approaching on January 31, 2022. To schedule a call or tour with Angela, please visit: www.roycemoreschool.org/admissions.
