Why should you consider a St. Leo's education?

Our Mission

The faculty and staff of St. Leo the Great School are committed to serving in partnership with parents to guide the academic, spiritual, and personal development of each child entrusted to our care.  We work to assist our students to achieve their full potential in terms of spiritual development, self-assurance, and academic excellence as we teach a faith-based curriculum that will prepare our students for success in high school and in life.

The strong collaborative effort between home and school provides the necessary guidance and motivation that will enable our students to become fully developed Christians, who accept responsibility for their personal lives and who are blessings for their families, their parish, and their community.
