Jesuit Father Paul Sheridan to Lead Regis Jesuit High School

November 24, 2014 — Jesuit Father Paul Sheridan, an education innovator, will succeed Jesuit Father Philip Steele as president of Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colorado. The appointment will take effect July 1.

Fr. Sheridan is currently president at Bellarmine College Preparatory, an all-boys Jesuit high school in San Jose, California, where he has served since 2006.

Before that, he was president of St. Louis University High School for eight and a half years. While at SLUH, he helped to found Loyola Academy, a Jesuit middle school for boys in St. Louis that follows the Jesuits’ Nativity School model.

In 1977, Fr. Sheridan founded Boys Hope Girls Hope in St. Louis and oversaw it until 1996. Under his leadership, the program grew to include 17 homes around the country and in Latin America, including two homes just down the street from Regis Jesuit High. He serves as a member of the executive committee of the Boys Hope Girls Hope national board. He also is a member of the Cristo Rey and Nativity boards in San Jose.

Fr. Sheridan holds a Master of Divinity degree from Weston School of Theology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a master's degree in history from Saint Louis University and a bachelor's degree in philosophy and letters from Fordham University. He joined the Society of Jesus in 1963 and was ordained a Jesuit priest in 1975.

Fr. Sheridan was selected from many highly qualified candidates who emerged in a national search. Among his qualities, the school said, are his commitment to Jesuit education and his leadership and fundraising abilities. [Source: Central and Southern Jesuits]
