Dear Friends in the Bishop Eustace Preparatory School Community,
 
As we embark not only on a new year, but also a new decade, it has been a time of reflection upon the deep tradition that that defines our community, and one of looking forward to its continued growth.
 
Over the past several months, we have spoken with administrators, faculty, staff, parents, students, and alumni. In doing so, we identified the challenges we face — and the core strengths that will empower us to overcome them.
 
Today, we are proud to announce the most recent fruit of our efforts: A new brand that boldly illustrates the identity, spirit, and charism of Eustace Prep.
 
In addition to a striking new logo, our strengths have been distilled into a fresh voice for the school. Both clearly communicate our Pallottine legacy and the incredible achievements it makes possible. You can read more about our brand at this webpage.
 
Please know that this new brand is just one part of a larger initiative to make our school more current and competitive. With the continued support of the Pallottines, we are actively investing into the future of Eustace Prep. You will continue to see more updates as we roll out further initiatives in the coming months.
 
Our hope is that this new direction will provide us with a unified voice and symbol under which we can rally — for the continued growth of our students and our school.
 
While our brand may be new, it draws from the same fundamental pillars that have sustained our community since 1954: The Pallottines’ investment into our future; the strength of our Crusaders; and, with your support, the ongoing success of Eustace Prep for many decades to come.
 
Saint Vincent Pallotti, Pray for Us!
 
Mary, Queen of the Apostles, Pray for Us!
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Very Reverend Peter T. Sticco, S.A.C., and the Board of Trustees

    Dr. Jacqueline P. Coccia brings extensive experience in educational leadership to her role as Head of School at Eustace Prep.

    She arrived earlier this year as the next phase in an impressive career spanning 20 years in Catholic education as a classroom educator, principal, and senior administrator. Since 2014, Dr. Coccia had served as principal of the Academy of Notre Dame de Namur, an independent Catholic college preparatory school for girls in grades 6-12 with over 500 students.

    She spent her early professional days as a teacher and then principal at Catholic elementary schools in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. In recognition of her leadership capabilities and vision she was later asked to serve in the Archdiocesan Office of Catholic Education—first as Director of Elementary Education and then as Superintendent of Elementary Schools. As Superintendent, she was responsible for overall leadership of 123 parish and regional elementary schools and four schools of special education serving approximately 65,000 students through 3,500 teachers and 127 principals.

    Dr. Coccia holds a B.S. in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Cabrini College, an M.A. in Educational Leadership from Immaculata University, and a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership and Management from Drexel University. As an area of specialty, she helped create and implement strategic plans to enact curriculum development and academic rigor.
