The president of Loyola High School provides spiritual and educational leadership of the school in the fulfillment of its mission as a Catholic, Jesuit, University preparatory school.
As Director of the Apostolate, the president ensures the Jesuit character and Ignatian vision of the school, as articulated by the Society of Jesus. As the Loyola community’s spiritual leader, the president promotes the integration of faith and culture within the school. The president is responsible for communicating the school’s mission and vision clearly and enthusiastically by delegating responsibility and authority to others and calling them to accountability through prudent strategic planning and decision making.
The president works to lead all members of the Loyola community to do their very best in carrying out the school’s Catholic, Jesuit mission and philosophy.
The president serves as the Chief Executive Officer for Loyola High School and has overall responsibility for the school. The president provides leadership and oversight of all aspects of the school, academics, finance, planning, student affairs, enrollment, advancement, and athletics. The president works closely with the school's Leadership Team to ensure that the strategic direction and policies of the school are aligned with its mission.
The president of Loyola is jointly mandated by the Jesuit Provincial Superior and by the Board of Directors who mandate the president as the Director of the Apostolate.
All apostolic missions entrusted to the Society of Jesus are ultimately accountable to the General of that Society through appropriate methods of subsidiarity. These usually involve accountability of the Director of the apostolic work (Jesuit or lay) in close collaboration with the appropriate local superior to the Provincial who in turn is responsible to the Superior General.
In practice, the president reports to and is evaluated by the Board of Governors and works with the Board of Governors in establishing policies and strategic direction to guide the institution.
As the chief executive officer, the president has principal responsibility for the planning, development, implementation, assessment, and improvement of all programs and policies.
· Serves as a compelling spokesperson for Catholic, Jesuit education within the school and beyond;
· Is the chief advocate and leader of the school’s mission;
