About

Leadership

A Leadership Team in an Augustinian School engages in a process of collaboration and collegiality in matters pertaining to the school community. The assumption is that each member of the team has a valued perspective and is genuinely invested in the endeavor which maximizes the efforts of others - faculty, staff, and students, toward the achievement of a greater good, namely, the education of the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. Leadership involves establishing a clear vision, sharing that vision with others and providing the information, knowledge, and methods to realize that vision.

Joining Fr. Reilly on the Leadership Team are the following members of our community:
