Our school is sponsored by the parish family of St. Helena. The Bishop of the Diocese of Metuchen appoints the Vicar of Education and together they appoint a Superintendent and Assistant Superintendents who establish guidelines for all diocesan schools. At St. Helena School, the pastor (appointed by the Bishop) and the principal (appointed by the Felician Community) work together to formulate policies and to maintain diocesan guidelines.
There is clear understanding on the part of the pastor, principal and faculty, of the responsibility essential for working together effectively. Our school benefits from the positive atmosphere that is created by the unity between faculty and staff. The principal is involved with all committees that develop policies for the school. The guidelines provided by the diocese enable our school to maintain high academic standards.
