  • President

    For more than 129 years, Saint Joseph Academy has provided a faith-filled environment where young women are emboldened to flourish and broaden their horizons as leaders who value their minds, their faith, and the dear neighbor.

    Saint Joseph Academy, the only all-girls Catholic high school in the city of Cleveland, is rooted in the spirituality of its founding sponsors, the Congregation of St. Joseph. Since the establishment of Saint Joseph Academy in 1890, 30 years before women were given the right to vote, the sisters’ commitment to the education of young women has inspired the faculty and staff at Saint Joseph Academy to provide each student who walks through its doors with every possible opportunity for academic excellence and personal growth.

    At this time, Saint Joseph Academy seeks a new President who will honor the School’s 129 years of history and ensure it remains a relevant and inspired place for young women to learn. Strong candidates will be able to demonstrate a sustained commitment to service, a dexterity with building and sustaining cohesive communities, and a meaningful relationship with spirituality that influences both their personal and professional pursuits.
    While the next President of the Academy will be privileged to join an educational enterprise with stirring momentum and much potential for growth, there are nonetheless important challenges to lean into:
    • Following the completion of Phase One of the Fitzmaurice Hall renovation this summer, ensure a smooth transition into the new spaces.
    • Significantly expanding the Academy’s capacity for fundraising, not only for current initiatives but also for future improvements vital for its ongoing excellence. Key to these efforts will be engaging more alumnae in the process and identifying new donors.
    • Growing the endowment is a crucial goal, and improving arts and athletic facilities is also an expressed desire.
    • The Cleveland educational marketplace is a highly competitive one, involving not only independent and parochial schools but also public school options. Saint Joseph is committed to enhancing its profile in the community, developing bolder messaging consistent with its earned stature, and enhancing the effectiveness of its admissions and enrollment management efforts.
    • Affordability is a concern — making sure that the school remains within the reach of middle class families. Expanding financial aid resources will be key.
    • Saint Joseph Academy has benefited enormously from its gifted and devoted faculty. Continuing to be able to recruit, retain and develop dynamic and difference making teachers will need to be a core strategy in the years ahead.
