Welcome from the President/Principal

Principal-pict.jpgWelcome to St. Vincent Pallotti High School. Pallotti High School has served a sacred mission for over 90 years. Under the guidance of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters for more than 75 of those years, Pallotti has empowered students to realize and develop their individual gifts and talents. In the process, generations of Pallotti students have been instilled with the Pallottine message that God impels us to use our gifts and talents to serve others.

As you view our website I sincerely hope that you can appreciate what it means to be part of the Pallotti community. Pallotti High School offers its students a wide range of learning opportunities in academics, athletics, performing arts, and extra-curricular activities. All are designed to serve our mission of developing students spiritually, academically, physically, and socially.

Please feel free to come visit us in person. I think you will find that Pallotti is a small school offering our students big opportunities.
