Saint Leo the Great School is proud to announce that in addition to our recent recognition as a 2020 New Jersey School of Character, we have now been recognized as a 2020 National School of Character. Saint Leo’s is the first school in the Diocese of Trenton to be designated as such and one of only 84 schools throughout the country to be recognized as a 2020 National School of Character.
Character.org, a national advocate for character education, certifies schools that demonstrate a dedicated focus on character development which has a positive effect on academic achievement, student behavior, and school climate. These schools serve as an exemplary model for all schools across the United States.
During challenging times, it is even more critical that we ensure the continued spiritual, academic, and personal growth of our students. At Saint Leo the Great, our CHARACTER keeps us LION STRONG!
Congratulations to all!

Saint Leo the Great School is a place for all its members to encounter the Living God through the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Its sacred mission is the formation of youth entrusted to its care through spiritual, educational, social and athletic activities.
Administrators, Faculty and Staff, in imitation of the Lord Jesus, lovingly guide students to a deeper knowledge and practice of the Faith. The gradual process of integration of internalized values is concretely expressed through service to God and community.
We believe in the capacity of the individual to lead with compassion, learn with commitment, and act with courage. Focusing on the needs of each child, we achieve our purpose by word and deed. Students are inspired to achieve the highest standards in intellectual achievement through developmentally appropriate instruction that allows for individual differences and learning styles. They are encouraged to be active participants in their commitment to God, kindness to each other, and pursuit of knowledge.
