Andrew Rossi named headmaster of Our Lady of Walsingham

By Paul Dusseault

COLORADO SPRINGS.  Our Lady of Walsingham Academy (OLWA), Colorado Springs’ first classical Catholic high school, has named Andrew Rossi as headmaster. He succeeds Mark Langley, who served as OLWA headmaster since the school’s founding in 2021.  

“Becoming headmaster at Our Lady of Walsingham Academy is both a privilege and a profound responsibility,” said Rossi. “I am deeply honored to lead the school and I am committed to fostering an environment where every student can flourish academically and spiritually.”

Langley’s tenure as headmaster has been marked by remarkable achievements.  The school — which stresses a rigorous academics, small class sizes, adherence to the Magisterium, and preference for original sources — has grown in student population and regional reputation. Faculty is now recruited nationwide.

“Serving as the first headmaster of Our Lady of Walsingham Academy has been one of the greatest honors of my career,” said Langley. “I am immensely proud of what we have accomplished, and I am confident that the academy will continue to thrive under Mr. Rossi’s capable leadership.”

At the academy, Rossi currently teaches philosophy, medieval history, Latin, theology, medieval literature, Euclidean mathematics, and drama. A graduate of Thomas Aquinas College, he began teaching at St. Augustine Academy, a Catholic classical school in Ventura, California. He holds a master’s degree in scriptural theology from St. Augustine Institute.

“We are grateful for Mr. Langley’s exceptional service and are excited to welcome Mr. Rossi’s vision and passion to the headmaster role,” said Jacob Heal, chair of the Our Lady of Walsingham Academy board of directors. “This transition marks a new chapter for our school, one filled with promise and continued commitment to our educational and spiritual undertaking.”

The mission of Our Lady of Walsingham Academy is to form liberally educated Catholic ladies and gentlemen while focusing on the classics of Western thought and the interrelationship of timeless ideas. It is believed that the best education appreciates truth, beauty, and goodness and helps students grow in the cardinal virtues of prudence, temperance, fortitude and justice. Such emphasis produces articulate, clear-thinking, well-rounded and joyful young people prepared to reflect Christ in the modern world.
