Saint Leo the Great School is a dynamic learning environment rooted in Catholic faith and tradition.

We recognize each child as a creation of God made in His image with unique gifts and talents.
Throughout the learning environment, educators incorporate Gospel values and foster a spirit of inquiry.

We strive to teach as Jesus does --- with authority, compassion and love.
