New Siena principal will be a familiar face

The assistant principal at Siena Catholic Academy in Brighton will soon become principal, the Diocese of Rochester announced June 13.

Vincent Tata of Rochester, who has served as assistant principal at Siena since 2007, will replace Tim Leahy, who is retiring at the end of the school year after 11 years as principal at Siena.

The school serves grades 7 and 8 and is the only diocesan middle school in Monroe County. It is located on the campus of St. Thomas More Church in Brighton.

Before coming to Siena, Tata held a variety of administrative and teaching positions in Rochester, Penfield, Monroe 1 BOCES and Orleans-Niagara BOCES. Tata received a bachelor’s degree in physical education and sports medicine and a master’s degree in educational administration/supervision from Canisius College in Buffalo.

“I believe strongly that all students can learn given a positive learning experience that welcomes exploration and enhances student confidence through active participation,” Tata said in a statement.
