St. Anne's-Belfield is excited to announce that alumnus Bo Perriello ’89, teacher and longtime boys’ lacrosse head coach, has been named head of school for Field School, an all boys' middle school in Charlottesville. He will begin in July.
Mr. Perriello is a member of a legacy family at St. Anne’s-Belfield. The long line of Saints include sister, Dr. Paige Perriello; brother, attorney and former House of Representatives member Tom Perriello; and four children: Vito ’20, Katherine ’21, Kelsey ’23, and Cadigan ’25. Mr. Perriello returned to the St. Anne's-Belfield community in 2004 and has served as a teacher, advisor, alumni engagement director, an admission director, and boys’ lacrosse head coach.
"We are thrilled for an alum from our school to be selected to lead a school,” says Head of School Autumn A. Graves. “Bo will be able to offer his broad perspective as a coach, mentor, advisor, and teacher to serve the boys of Field School. It’s a testament to Bo’s past teachers and his St. Anne’s-Belfield education of yesteryear that still today, he believes fervently in the whole child and puts students first in all he does."
Says Director of Athletics Seth Kushkin, “Coach Perriello is a presence on and off the field who builds deep connections with his players and his coaching team. We wish him all the best in his next venture.”
Boys' lacrosse won five state championships during Mr. Perriello’s tenure as coach. He has been named VPL Coach of the Year, Central Virginia Coach of the Year, a US Lacrosse Convention speaker, and Under Armor All-American Games Head Coach for DC/VA. This spring will be Bo Perriello's final coaching season. Saints Athletics looks forward to honoring his Saints coaching career during Alumni Weekend. Please join us for the boys' lacrosse game vs. Paul the VI either Friday, April 14 or Saturday, April 15. Exact date and more details to come.
