The principal will join a dedicated faculty and staff in promoting an exceptional education and ongoing spiritual formation. Fulfilling the Catholic mission of the school and achieving academic excellence require that the school principal work collaboratively to direct and nurture all members of school staff. The principal will oversee personnel, budgeting, and facilities operations, curriculum development among other responsibilities.
