Principal Nathan Barontini

Nathan Barontini has been a member of the faculty at Prince of Peace since 2017. He has taught history and religion and served as Dean of Middle School Students. 

One of the things Mr. Barontini is most proud of is extending the middle school lector program into the upper elementary school, providing active roles at the school Mass for students from fourth grade to eighth grade. He also enjoyed coaching boy’s soccer, eventually winning SCYSA’s Boys Recreational Coach of the Year.

Before joining the faculty at Prince of Peace, Mr. Barontini taught a fourteen-week exposition on Dante’s Divine Comedy at the parish. Dante Alighieri’s writings prompted Mr. Barontini’s journey back to Catholicism from atheism. Other important thinkers who paved the way for his conversion include: St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine of Hippo, Plato, Pope Benedict XVI, C.S. Lewis, Aristotle and many others.

Mr. Barontini relocated his family from Pittsburgh to Greenville after a visit to the area which included Mass at Prince of Peace. After returning home, he was impressed with the responses to the emails he sent to Father Tomlinson and Father Smith. In quick order, Mr. Barontini decided Prince of Peace was the “spiritual home” for his family. The Barontini family moved to Greenville in 2014 and have been deeply engaged in and committed to Prince of Peace ever since.

Mr. Barontini graduated cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh where he studied history and classics and attained a master’s degree in teaching. He is a member of the Dante Society of America, the Knights of Columbus, and the honor societies: Pi Lambda Theta, Phi Eta Sigma, and Phi Alpha Theta.

Mr. Barontini’s passion as principal is to uphold the high academic standards, virtue development, and deep commitment to the Catholic Faith for which the school is known.

At Prince of Peace Catholic School, the principal reports directly to the pastor and serves as the director and manager of the day-to-day operations of the school.  The principal works to uphold the Catholic mission of the school in the development of policies and protocols, and to provide direction and  oversight to the programs and personnel of the school.
