Meet Our Leadership

Principal, Laura Cain

An MSM alumna and parent, Laura has a deep-rooted love for Mount St. Mary. Laura is a 1989 graduate of MSM, and her three daughters graduated in 2016 and 2020. Laura’s stepdaughter is a current Mount St. Mary student. Laura has been in education for 27 years, 14 of those in leadership. Most recently, she served as principal at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School and served as a member of the Steering Team for Director of Catholic Education Leadership Transition in 2021.

“I am honored to lead Mount St. Mary Catholic High School, an institution that is dear to me as an alum and parent of three graduates,” Laura Cain said. “My experience as a Catholic school leader allows me to build on the school’s tradition of excellence, making sure all programs and practices not only align with our mission and values, but move The Mount from excellent to extraordinary.”

Laura is a dynamic leader who embraces the unique culture, traditions and values of The Mount, which is a unique school governed in cooperation with co-sponsors – The Sisters of Mercy and the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. 

“We are confident Laura will lead the school in the spirit and mission of the Sisters of Mercy and the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. With her leadership experience, her connection to the archdiocese, The Mount and to Mercy, Laura is well positioned to move the mission of the school forward,” said Sr. Lisa Griffith, RSM, executive director of Mercy Education and Most Reverend Paul S. Coakley, Archbishop of Oklahoma City.

David recently returned to The Mount after two years as secondary principal at Oklahoma Christian Academy. He has previously served Mount St. Mary for over 15 years as an English teacher and later as the Dean of Curriculum and Instruction. As assistant principal, David will assist Mrs. Laura Cain in stewarding the school’s mission and values.

“David Roberts brings exactly the right combination of expertise and experience to the new administration at MSM. He shares our commitment to form well-educated disciples of Jesus and build meaningful relationships with students. I am thrilled that God called Mr. Roberts back to The Mount,” stated incoming principal Laura Cain.
