Superintendent of Catholic SchoolsRoman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston
Centered in one of the world’s great cities and spread across 144 communities in eastern Massachusetts, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston is an ethnically diverse and spiritually enriching faith community, consisting of numerous parishes, a social service outreach that assists more than 200,000 persons each year, and a network of high performing Catholic schools that are educating more than 46,000 students in 120 elementary and secondary schools.
The schools of the Archdiocese offer an education that combines academic excellence and Catholic faith formation to ensure life-long learning and the development of responsible and compassionate citizens. Cardinal O’Malley supports the pursuit of new approaches to organize, fund and manage Catholic education across the Archdiocese. He has declared the revitalization and reinvigoration of Catholic education throughout the Archdiocese as a top priority, committing resources towards a creative and energetic approach to address the issues facing Catholic schools.
The new Superintendent will inherit an organization well-positioned for achievement and success, in large part due to the work of his/her predecessor, as well as the energy and enthusiasm of a supportive local community. S/he will benefit from new organizational structures that will more readily meet the human and financial needs of the schools going forward. With successful academy models in Dorchester, Brockton, Lawrence, and Quincy serving as proof points, and the encouragement of the Archdiocesan leadership to continue to think creatively about change, RCAB is ready to continue further implementation of the strategic plan.
Therefore, the Archdiocese of Boston seeks a gifted leader with the gravitas and the credibility to lead and represent its Catholic schools with integrity, a track record of building success and driving change, and a commitment to Catholic education, service and social justice. The next Superintendent of Catholic Schools will be a practicing Catholic with demonstrated experience leading and transforming large, distributed and decentralized organizations, including non-profits. S/he will be a proven change agent with a strategic orientation and vision, as well as a sophisticated leader, skilled at fostering collaboration, building alliances among diverse stakeholders, and developing and stewarding a rich network of productive relationships.
