St. Leo Elementary School

120 Main Street,
Worcester, MA, 01603-0191
Tel: (978)537-1007
Grades: PK - 8 | 293 students
Attending a Catholic school is special as our children get to pray, attend liturgies and learn their religion, practices forbidden in government-run schools.
But, the differences between the two systems go far deeper than these important practices.
The faculty and staff are committed to providing a quality education which challenges students to reach “one pace beyond” as they prepare to become responsible citizens and the caretakers of God’s world in the 21st century.
Our Religion program facilitates the children's spiritual growth.
Daily prayer, frequent liturgies, and outreach programs enhance the teaching of Catholic doctrine.
