Learn By Doing

The greatest adventure for every child is discovering their own individual path to knowledge, understanding and awareness.

Our mission is to educate the whole child: spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically. We provide a climate of excellence that affirms that as educators we can and do make a difference. The heart of learning begins here.

Mission & Philosophy

The tradition continues at St. Leo’s school where we offer an outstanding program based on traditional Christian values and high academic standards that provide our students the tools necessary to become successful and moral citizens.

At St. Leo’s School we believe in:

  • The worth and dignity of every member of our school family
  • Promoting and appreciating the value of working together in a community of
    learners
  • Providing a challenging curriculum that responds and respects the needs of
    individual learners
A Word
