- Saint Leo the Great School is a dynamic learning environment rooted in Catholic faith and tradition. With Jesus Christ as our model and guide, we follow faithfully on a lifelong journey to grow and develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, physically and culturally. 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 employ a variety of tools and techniques to challenge each child to achieve his or her full potential. In collaboration with parents, the child's primary educators, we provide a safe, nurturing atmosphere, infused with faith, morals and Catholic principles. Together, we prepare children to be faithful Catholics and productive citizens in a global society. We strive to teach as Jesus does --- with authority, compassion and love.
