Principal's Page

I feel blessed to have been hired as the Principal at St. Leo Catholic School. I was born and raised in New York City and received a Catholic education by the Sisters of St. Joseph and the Brothers of Holy Cross. I possess a Bachelor Degree in Human Services from State University of New York and graduated Cum Laude with a Masters Degree in School Administration from North Carolina Central University.

I spent the first 15 years of my adult life as a member of the New York City Police Department with 10 years as a supervisor. I spent the last 18 years in Catholic education as a middle school teacher and Assistant Principal in the Diocese of Raleigh.

I have been married for 31 years and have 25 year old twin children. My daughter is a graduate of Elon University as well as Boston University for her graduate degree. My son graduated from The University of Notre Dame (GO IRISH) and spent 2 years as a Jesuit Volunteer teaching English in a Catholic School in Tanzania.

I am honored to be the Principal here at St Leo as well as a member of the St. Leo Catholic Church community.

Yours In Christ, 
Gary Callus, Principal
