Joyce DeVito, M.Ed., Principal

Joyce DeVito serves as the Principal of Sage Day School located in Hamilton, New Jersey. She holds a master’s degree in special education and a master’s degree in school administration from Rowen University, as well as a bachelor's degree in social work from Monmouth University. Prior to joining Sage Day Schools, she was a special education teacher, assistant principal, and principal in a variety of settings.

Joyce began her career as a teacher of students with Emotional Regulation Impairment in a private school setting. Joyce remained in this school district for 16 years serving students aged 3-21 with a variety of disabilities. During that time, she had the privilege to work as principal of an elementary campus, middle school campus and transition campus, covering the gambit of age levels and disability categories. One of her most rewarding experiences was being tasked to create a program/campus designed specific to students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Joyce finished her public school experience as principal of the newly created Transition Campus. Since 2010, she also worked as a part-time lecturer in the college setting, teaching both undergraduate and graduate students.

With more than 20 years of experience as a special educator, school administrator, and college lecturer, Joyce retired from public education to accept the position as Principal at Sage Day Princeton. Sage Day Princeton serves students 4th grade thru 12th grade with a variety of mental health challenges. The focus is on the “whole” child, providing a comprehensive curriculum that has small class sizes along with therapeutic education for both the child and their family integrated into the school day. Joyce felt this was the perfect opportunity to bring her experience to an environment that allows for growth, development and the opportunity to continue to serve students with unique abilities.
