Principal Search

 Marian Catholic is thrilled to announce the appointment of Dr. Joe Zampillo Ed.D. '89 as the school's ninth Principal for the upcoming 2024-2025 academic year. The decision follows an extensive national search conducted in collaboration with Carney, Sandoe and Associates, aimed at identifying an exemplary and experienced educational leader who aligns with the values and aspirations of the Marian Catholic community.

As the interim principal and chair of the principal search committee, I am excited about the opportunity to guide the institution while the committee undertakes the search for and selection of the forthcoming principal. Collaborating with the leadership team, support staff, faculty, and the Board throughout this transitional phase, I am enthusiastic about our joint efforts. As multiple stakeholders, we will uphold the Marian Catholic mission, values, and tradition of delivering excellence to our students and their families.
