Mr. Accavitti has a solid educational background.” said Bishop Foley Catholic President and Father Gerard LeBoeuf. “I believe that I have hired the best principal to meet our needs, and one who will continue our mission of being “Undeniably Catholic, Academically Excellent.”
Since joining the school three years ago, Accavitti is amazed at the dedication of the faculty, caliber of the students and support of the families. “It was my dream to continue to be a part of the Foley Family as one of its leaders, and I am both humbled by, and grateful for, the decision to elevate me to the position of principal. Foley is my home, and I am personally guided by the same faith and principles that have defined this great community for over 50 years.” Accavitti said.
Accavitti received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Michigan State University and has also earned a Master of Science from Madonna University.
