I want to update you on Sacred Heart Academy’s principal search. After an initial search, I have recommended to the Board of Trustees and the Sisters of Saint Joseph that Sacred Heart Academy appoint S. Jean Amore, CSJ, Ed.D. to serve as interim principal while we continue to identify the right long-term leader for SHA.
S. Jean currently serves as the Vice President of Mission and Academics. In 2015-2016, she served as the interim president. She is an accomplished educator and an esteemed member of the SHA community whose vision and wisdom have greatly influenced the path on which Sacred Heart has flourished over the past six years.
A proven and respected leader, S. Jean previously served as the dean of St. Joseph’s College and as the head of the CSJ congregation. She exemplifies the shared mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph and Sacred Heart Academy and I am confident that under her leadership, SHA will continue to offer excellent academic programming rooted in our mission.
We have aspirational goals that call for an academic visionary committed to SHA’s unique mission. With the advantage of an interim strategy, we can be careful and confident in our selection. Our goal is to have an excellent next principal in place for the 2019-20 academic year.
I know you will join me in supporting S. Jean in her role next year. I ask for your continued prayers as we complete this important work.
President of Sacred Heart Academy
