St. Xavier High School Names New President

December 19, 2017 — St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati has announced that Tim Reilly, a 1976 alumnus, will be the school's next president. He will officially assume his new duties in July 2018, succeeding Jesuit Father Timothy Howe.

Reilly joins St. Xavier from St. Ignatius Loyola School in Cincinnati, where he has served as principal since 1995. Following Reilly's graduation from St. Xavier, he attained a Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, then a Masters of Education degree at Xavier University in Cincinnati, where he later earned a principal's certificate and an assistant superintendent certificate. He then earned a catechist certification from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Reilly had a long history with St. Xavier prior to being named the school's president. In addition to attending St. Xavier as a student, Reilly served as a member of the Board of Trustees and was also a St. Xavier parent.

“Tim Reilly values the Jesuit Catholic identity that is at the core of our mission as an institution, he feels a deep passion for St. Xavier, and he has the necessary leadership skills to propel St. Xavier forward for years to come,” said Jesuit Father Brian Paulson, provincial of the Jesuits' USA Midwest province.

His exemplary work at St. Ignatius High School as principal is one of the reasons he was chosen to be the new St. Xavier president. During his tenure, St. Ignatius was named one of Cincinnati’s best elementary and secondary schools in 2016, a Top 100 Work Places in Cincinnati in 2014 through 2017, and a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence in 2008. In Reilly's 20 years there, the school also expanded its facilities and increased its enrollment.

Reilly’s hire comes at the end of a national search to find a successor for Fr. Howe, who arrived at St. Xavier in 2009 and has accepted a new assignment from the provincial, which will be announced in 2018. [Source: Midwest Province]
