We are pleased to announce that Dr Eileen Lapington has been appointed a full-time faculty member and Vice-Principal at Cardinal Newman this school year. Dr. Lapington is no stranger to Newman students and parents; since the school opened its doors in 2017, Dr Lapington has taught Latin and History classes, has been a cheerleader and photographer at sporting events, and is a steady presence around campus. Dr Lapington has a PhD in European History from Brown University and a passion for Catholic education. She is the product of a small Catholic high school, and she knows personally the impact of a joyfully and authentically Catholic education. “I desperately want to share the gift of Catholic education with every student,” Dr Lapington says, “so that every student leaves Cardinal Newman prepared to live their faith, and in doing so joyfully, to be an evangelist to all they meet.”
