Meet our Headmaster

NJ Private School Faculty

Joseph A. Pacelli (Washington and Jefferson College, B.A.; Seton Hall University, M.S.) has gained a reputation as one of the shore area’s outstanding educators. He was the Assistant Principal at Christian Brothers Academy, Lincroft, from 1971 to 1980. In 1981, Mr. Pacelli founded Oak Hill Academy as a private junior high school. 

The Academy’s rapid growth into a thriving elementary school is due not only to Mr. Pacelli’s knowledge of the educational process, but also to the personal connection he makes with every student, parent and faculty member in the school. Utilizing his background in mathematics, Mr. Pacelli remains involved by teaching math to the Upper School students.
