Marian Catholic High School proudly announces the appointment of Nora Zerante, ’11, as the new assistant principal for the 2024-2025 school year. Zerante, who has dedicated eight exemplary years to Marian Catholic as the English Department Chair, English teacher, and head varsity softball coach, now steps into this esteemed leadership role.

While at Marian Catholic, Zerante has demonstrated a profound commitment to academic excellence, student welfare, and extracurricular enrichment. Her leadership within the English Department has been characterized by innovative teaching methodologies, fostering critical thinking skills, and nurturing a love for literature among her students. As the head varsity softball coach, she has instilled values of teamwork, discipline, and sportsmanship, guiding her team to numerous victories both on and off the field.

Zerante’s appointment as assistant principal further solidifies her dedication to serving the school community and nurturing its continued success. In her new role as Assistant Principal, Zerante will work closely with the newly appointed principal, Dr. Joe Zampillo, Ed.D. ‘89, to uphold Marian Catholic’s tradition of academic excellence, spiritual development, and community engagement. Together, they will lead Marian Catholic into its next chapter of growth and achievement.

“It is an honor and privilege to serve Marian Catholic as Assistant Principal alongside Dr. Joe Zampillo,” said Zerante. “The Dominican pillars of study, prayer, preaching, and community are the foundational values that built my personal educational and leadership philosophy. In my time as a student, teacher, and coach at Marian Catholic, I have learned building community and relationships are essential to our success, and nurturing relationships will be at the heart of the work I do with our students, faculty and staff, parents and families, and alumni.”

The appointment of Nora Zerante as assistant principal signifies Marian Catholic High School’s continued commitment to providing exceptional education and leadership opportunities for its students.
