New Principal Announcement


It is with great joy and excitement that I announce the appointment of Will Merchant as the Principal of our beloved school community starting July 1, 2024. As a member of Seton LaSalle for the past four years as the Dean of Students and then the Dean of Formation, Mr. Merchant brings a wealth of experience in education, a love of our school community, a deep commitment to our Catholic values, and a visionary approach that will continue to foster the growth and excellence of our students.

Mr. Merchant’s dedication to academic excellence and holistic student development aligns perfectly with our school's mission and the legacies of our patron saints, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and St. John Baptist de La Salle.  Inspired by their dedication, Mr. Merchant is committed to nurturing a learning environment where every student is encouraged to strive for excellence and to grow in their faith.

I am confident that Mr. Merchant's appointment will mark a new chapter of growth and achievement for our school community. The search for a new Assistant Principal will begin immediately.  I also take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to Mrs. Lauren Martin for her invaluable contributions to our school over the last 13 years. Our entire school family wishes her all the best in her new role as Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Pittsburgh.  Please join us in praying for Mr. Merchant and Mrs. Martin in their new roles and for God’s continued blessings upon our school.

With Rebel Pride,

Lisa C. Osterhaus
