It is my pleasure to welcome you to St. Leo Catholic Academy! Although this is only my second year as principal, I have grown to love the community and families of our academy. I have learned from our teachers, teacher's aides, staff members, parents and students just how special St Leo Catholic Academy really is. It is a "hidden gem" of Corona. I love to walk around the school and visit all the classes. Even our "littlest" learners, they truly bring joy to their teachers. Educating our children in the faith and teaching them to live the Gospel remains the main goal of our school. We continue to emphasize the importance of service is one thing that I would like to restore at SLCA. This year, I want to dedicate my time to making SLCA even better. Making it a place for all to feel welcome. We combine this love of God with love of learning. Our hope is that each child in our school reaches their full potential, ready to take on anything that comes their way. Finally, every child in our school knows that they are loved and respected. Each child is known to all, cared for and nurtured. They are your greatest gift and our greatest responsibility. Mrs Theresa Picciano
Inspired by St. Leo the Great and rooted in our Catholic faith, St. Leo Catholic Academy’s mission is to foster spiritual development, academic excellence, responsibility to self, and service to others. We believe that the courage and devotion of St. Leo the Great will provide a model for Catholic education and remind us of our call to love and serve others by seeing Christ in each other.
