Located in Eugene, Oregon, Marist Catholic High School opened its doors in 1968 on a 30-acre campus along the banks of the Willamette River. In 2015, the school adopted the President/Principal leadership model and is now seeking its second Principal under this model. This is an outstanding opportunity to help shape the educational experience for students, faculty and staff, and families at a premier Catholic secondary school in the Archdiocese of Portland.

Beyond a focus on faith, Marist commits to robust academic, athletic, and extracurricular offerings. This includes 25 College Now, AP, and Honors track courses, 33 athletic teams, and over 50 clubs and activities.
