Acting Head of School

Eileen F. Corigliano

Eileen Corigliano has been a member of the Staten Island Academy community since 1995. She taught classes in Lower, Middle and Upper Schools, been an advisor, coached Middle and Upper School Athletic Teams as well as a club moderator. Without hesitation, she affectionately calls the Academy home. Ms. Corigliano, or as many of us on campus call her, Ms. Crig, can be found in her office with students and faculty, visiting classrooms, teaching or coaching. She feels it is important to maintain a connection to students and faculty by continuing to teach in the classroom and on the court. Being accessible, as part of the day-to-day with students, faculty and parents, is something she feels is essential to who we are as a community. 

Ms. Crig is currently a PhD candidate, pursuing her Doctoral in Education at Northeastern University. Additionally, she has a Professional Diploma in Educational Administration and Supervision, a Master of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in Reading, and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Speech Communication from St. John’s University. Ms. Crig was awarded the Administrator of the Year by the New York State School Counselor Association, National Association of Independent Schools Fellow, as well as other accolades over her time at the Academy. Additionally, she has served on various school evaluation teams for the New York State Association of Independent Schools.

Educating the “whole child” is the foundation of her educational philosophy. She believes that schools should offer a variety of core academic programs, including athletics, arts, technology and community-based service opportunities, while fostering intellectual, creative, social and physical development, all in a safe and nurturing environment.
