Jesuit Father Daniel Lahart Named President of Regis High School

February 20, 2015 — Jesuit Father Daniel Lahart has been named as the 22nd president of Regis High School in New York City. Fr. Lahart will assume his new role in August 2016.

Jesuit Father Philip Judge will complete his tenure as president of Regis High this June, and Jesuit Father James Croghan, who currently serves as the Director of Ignatian Identity Programs and Faculty Chaplain at Regis, will serve as interim president until Fr. Lahart arrives.

Fr. Lahart has served as president of Strake Jesuit College Preparatory in Houston for the past 14 years. Prior to his time at Strake Jesuit, Fr. Lahart served as Vice President for Finance and Administration at Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C., and as Provincial Assistant for Secondary Education for the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus.

Fr. Lahart holds an MBA from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business. He received a Master of Divinity degree from Weston School of Theology and a master’s degree in education from Boston College. He earned his undergraduate degree in finance from Georgetown University.

Fr. Lahart entered the Maryland Province Jesuits in 1983 after graduating from college. He began his career in education by teaching math at Scranton Preparatory School in Pennsylvania following philosophy studies at Saint Louis University.

“Fr. Lahart brings to Regis strong executive capabilities and a wealth of experience in managing Jesuit high schools.  Under his leadership, Strake Jesuit has been animated by Fr. Lahart's strong commitment to the Jesuit vision of forming men for others,” Peter Labbat, chair of the Regis Board of Trustees, said in a statement. [Source: Regis High School
