Holy Cross Welcomes New Principal Mark DeMareo, Ed.D.
It is a pleasure to welcome Dr. Mark DeMareo as the new principal of Holy Cross School. He comes to us with an extensive background in New Jersey public primary and secondary education and a life of devoted Catholic faith. The Diocesan Superintendent of Schools was pleased to endorse our selection of such a talented individual and looks forward to working with him.
Dr. DeMareo began teaching middle school, then high school before moving on to Assistant Principal, then Principal. He eventually became Assistant Superintendent and later Superintendent of Schools.
The roots of his Catholic faith run deep including two aunts who are nuns and an uncle who was a missionary Jesuit to India. He is a fourth-degree Knight of Columbus and last year was inducted into the Knights of Malta by Cardinal Dolan at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
We are confident Dr. DeMareo will continue to strengthen the academic and spiritual formation program at Holy Cross School. His extensive experience, both in the classroom and in administration and his love of the Catholic faith will be a blessing for Holy Cross school and parish.
Dr. DeMareo will be travelling to India for several weeks to offer a scholarship at a Catholic school founded by his uncle in Patna. We wish him healthy and safe travel and a welcome return to his new school family at Holy Cross.
A sincere thank you to all the members of the Principal Search Committee who took their great responsibility seriously and were diligent and faithful in their mission.
