School Advisors

The primary mission of the Saint Leo the Great Parish School Advisors is to develop, implement, monitor, evaluate and revise the strategic plan for the school. The strategic plan will embody the vision and the mission of Saint Leo the Great School. In addition, the strategic plan will contain the goals and action plans for Catholic Identity, enrollment, marketing, public relations, educational programs, finances, development and facilities as well as campus safety and security.


The Advisors have delegated responsibility, gathers in the spirit of the Gospel to promote, sustain and ensure the ministry of quality Catholic education and formation. This is accomplished by providing vision, leadership, and accountability in collaboration with the diocese and local administrators as well as key representatives of the school, parish and business community. This is further achieved by making informed and deliberative decisions in designated areas and proposing recommendations in other areas to the Pastor or his delegate who makes the final decision.
