2016-17 School Leadership Team
Timothy Welsh, Headmaster
“Matignon High School is a unique place in today’s society. It is a school where students are challenged not just academically, but are instilled with the Catholic, moral values so desperately needed today. Building on its tremendous heritage, the Matignon High School of today is a family of dedicated learners who are reaching their unlimited potential. I am proud to be part of this family…my Matignon family.”
Joseph DiSarcina, Principal
“I feel very privileged, proud, and honored to serve as the Principal of Matignon High School. My goal is to make the “Matignon Experience” become the pathway for our students to maximize their academic performance, to identify their passions in life, and to follow their dreams.”
Pat D’Angelo, Vice Principal
"What makes Matignon High School so special to me, after many years, is the number of graduates who return each year to thank the staff not only for the academic lessons, but also for the life lessons. For these returning students, as well as our current students, Matignon High School is a second home, a place that nurtures life-long learners."
Thomas Galligani, Headmaster Emeritus
"As a 1961 graduate of Matignon High School I am extremely pleased and proud to be a part of this wonderful school. Matignon High School is still fulfilling its goal of educational excellence for students of various socio-economic backgrounds. The students return this gift of education by continuing to move forward as strong moral and socially responsible adults in their chosen fields study."
Joseph Carabello, Guidance Director
"Working with high school students for my entire career has been truly rewarding, but for the past 40 years being a part of the Matignon High School Community has been extremely special. I have seen almost 5,000 graduates cross the auditorium stage to receive their diplomas. These graduates have attended college and have become successful professionals. It is always a pleasure to see my former students when they return and hear about their life after Matignon. Whether a current student or a graduate, the Matignon Guidance Department will always assist them. I am extremely proud of our students and what they have and will accomplish. Matignon High School holds a special place in my heart because Matignon High School is a very special place."
Christopher Martin, Chief Advancement Officer
"I was humbled with the opportunity to work at Matignon High School amongst such thriving and passionate faculty and students. Matignon is a school that remains true to its mission while consistently finding new ways to educate and grow our students to thrive in an ever changing society. I am proud to call Matignon my home."
Sarah Crass, International Program Director
“My years of living in Southeast Asia planted a deep appreciation for eastern cultures and helped ignite my passion for helping young people find connections with one another. I firmly believe that Matignon High School’s highly diverse student population presents an amazing opportunity for each of us to increase our understanding of one another as individuals, and broaden our perceptions about the world as a whole.”
Emily Neuberger, Admissions Director
"What I love about Matignon is the school's commitment to diversity and inclusion. Not only does Matignon provide deserving students with the opportunity to learn, engage, and grow, but offers a welcoming and close-knit learning environment. The "Matignon Experience" is truly unique, authentic, and mission-centered; it prepares students for learning and success in an ever-evolving society and the opportunity to make lifelong memories of their high school years."
