President Search Information

Jesuit High School is conducting a national search for its new president.


The process to identify Jesuit High School’s next president has advanced to the next stage.

In July, the Search Committee created a survey for 18,000 members of the Jesuit community about the qualities sought in the next president and the priorities for the school. The Committee received a strong response and worked to analyze the data and study the many helpful comments provided by the Jesuit community.

In August, the Committee incorporated the survey results into a detailed description of the president position. The Committee published the position in local and national publications and contacted the individuals whose names surfaced in the survey results to invite their applications. 

The application period has now closed. Exceptionally qualified individuals from across the country submitted impressive applications to become Jesuit’s next president. The Committee will work in September to narrow the field and interview the finalists before making its recommendation to the Jesuit provincial and the Board of Directors.
