We are delighted to announce Mr. Matthew Malone as the new principal of our National Blue Ribbon PreK–8th Grade Catholic School.
Matt currently serves both on the faculty and as Assistant Principal at OLPH and brings with him a great love and passion for our parish school, its spiritual and academic mission, and the students we
serve. He was named Teacher of the Year this school year.
Matt’s spiritual and theological formation at Franciscan University and his prior parish experience in ministry allow him to serve well and advance our school’s vibrant spiritual mission. This mission, of providing our students with a living encounter with Jesus Christ, is fulfilled not only in the classroom setting but in the whole of our school’s life. Forming our students in the Gospel and a personal relationship with the Lord, lived out in the life of the Church, is what makes Catholic education so unique and so irreplaceable. We look forward to all that Matt brings to advancing this mission!
Matt is from a family of educators and earned his Bachelor of Science in Education and Theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville and his Master of Science in Education from Johns Hopkins University.
Matt’s gifts in the classroom as a teacher have made him beloved by our students. And in his role as Assistant Principal, he has earned the respect of his fellow teachers, indicated in the recent honor of being named Teacher of the Year. Working with our team of dedicated teachers, who bring decades of classroom experience, we look forward to the leadership that Matt brings to our school’s academic mission. Under his direction, we will continue to pursue academic excellence as we strive to develop each student’s abilities and talents in an environment that nurtures creativity, a joy of learning, and Catholic values.
Matt has been an active part of our parish family from childhood and shares in the rich history of our parish. Studies have shown that successful and flourishing Catholic schools need a close connection and bond with their parish family. Matt is uniquely suited to help strengthen that bond and ensure the flourishing of our school in the years to come. We are grateful and blessed to have Matt serve our school in this way. Please join us in congratulating Matthew and welcoming him to his new role as Principal of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic School!
