The newly created position of President comes at an important juncture in the school’s history as we seek a dynamic and spiritual leader with exceptional institution-building skills.

The President will act as the primary liaison between the school, the Advisory Council, the Archdiocese of Atlanta, feeder parishes and schools, and the broader Atlanta community. The President, ultimately, will be responsible for the successful overall operation of the school through effective marketing, enrollment and resources, effective planning and delegation of responsibilities to the administration, faculty and staff.
