At St. Leo the Great School our purpose is to love and teach children as Jesus did, to guide them to a deepening of faith, and to enlighten and enrich their lives.
We believe in the power of the individual to lead with compassion, to learn with commitment, and to act with courage.
Students are active participants in their pursuit of knowledge, and their service to God and their community.
We achieve our purpose by word and deed.
Focusing on the needs of each child, we integrate the varied aspects of human knowledge as set forth in the curriculum, and teach according to the strategies of each particular subject.
This process results in continual growth in knowledge and Christian values.
The high quality of education that St. Leo's children receive is a direct reflection of the experience and expertise of our faculty.
We consistently recruit and maintain a staff of teachers with sterling accreditation.
We attract these top quality faculty members by allocating 80% of tuition directly to faculty salaries and benefits.
This also explains why St. Leo's is able to maintain a remarkable student to teacher ratio of 18:1.
Insistence on a superior faculty has demonstrable rewards.
Our students' mean scores for Terranovas are in the 88th percentile nationally.
Most students who graduate subsequently enroll in respected private high schools.
