A Message from the Principal


I hope you are having a great summer vacation and are enjoying the remaining few days of summer break.  We are in the final phase of preparations for the first day of school and are looking forward to another outstanding academic school year!

Each year we evaluate the success of the school and continue to make adaptations and amendments to maximize student achievement.  To continue to meet the needs of our students and provide additional resources school wide, we are pleased to introduce two new full time faculty members to the Saint Leo the Great community.   

Mr. Tom Coyle will be joining Saint Leo’s as the new Dean of the Middle School. Tom is a graduate of American University with a B.A. in International Studies. He was awarded a Masters of Arts in Educational Administration and Supervision from Seton Hall University. Tom has honorably served the New Jersey State Police for over 29 years. He has served in various assignments including Emergency Management, Communications, Intelligence and the State Police Training Facility in Sea Girt.  His diverse experience will be integral to collaborating middle school academic achievement, curriculum development, and discipline management.

Ms. Caroline Fitzgerald will be joining us in a new position as our full time School Counselor.  Ms. Fitzgerald is a graduate of Iona University with a Bachelors of Science and was awarded a Masters in Education, School Counseling from Monmouth University.  Ms. Fitzgerald has worked closely with faculty and staff as a paraprofessional at Saint Leo’s for our second grade students and has enhanced the educational experience in that capacity. We look forward to the continued impact she will have on our student body in this new assignment.

We are proud of our achievements from last year and look forward to raising the bar for the spiritual, academic, and personal growth of our students.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Following the completion of an extensive security study of our Parish and School facilities, it was strongly recommended that the private road off Route 520 onto the property, the Convent driveway - a road not meant for public use, be removed. Contractors presently working on the parking lots have begun the removal process and a fence has been installed. Entrance onto the School and Church property is now only via Hurleys Lane.
