Principal’s Journal Message (Middle & High)

Dear Lavelle Prep Families,

The 2017-2018 school year marks our 9th year of operations. During this time, we have had the privilege of working with hundreds of families and students, we have sent dozens of students to college, and have been able to create an environment in which our students can thrive and develop into productive young adults. To say the least, we are excited for the future and the upcoming school year.

As with every year, our staff has spent the summer preparing and improving our curriculum in order to create an engaging and rigorous classroom environment. Our commitment to producing students who are ready for the college experience has led to our offering Advanced Placement classes to our Seniors, as well as college classes on the campus of St. John’s. The excitement from our students has translated into this year’s freshman class being the largest in Lavelle Prep history with the overwhelming majority of Middle School students choosing to spend their High School career with us at Lavelle.

All of our successes are only possible through the community we build here at Lavelle Prep, and the support we receive from the community at large. We thank you for choosing to become part of the team, and look forward to fulfilling the college promise.


Christopher Zilinski
