Meet our Office
Lee Carey
Director of Admissions and Secondary School Counseling
(978) 927-1700, ext. 207

With over 20 years at Shore, Lee is a veteran in the field of admissions and is thoroughly versed in the evaluation of young candidates. As the parent of three Shore graduates, and as the school's secondary school counselor, her knowledge and breadth of information about the programs is thorough. She views the admissions process as a positive occasion for families to learn more about their own children. "Evaluating 4 and 5 year olds never fails to keep my job fresh and lively, and working with older students extends my focus on the cycles of growth and development in children."

Daphne Faldi
Associate Director of Admissions
(978) 927-1700, ext. 206
Inspired by her own work during her student years in admissions, Daphne brings her experience in sales and her enthusiasm for Shore to work every day.  “Shore gave me the desire and curiosity to learn.  It was the foundation for my future schooling, and I cannot say often enough how influential those early years were for me.”  As the mother of three young sons, Daphne knows the experiences of young parents as well as their questions about elementary education.  She is eager to connect prospective families to all of the resources that will help them to learn about Shore.
