December 13, 2017 — Arrupe Jesuit High School in Denver has announced the selection of Michael J. O'Hagan as the school's next president. Jesuit Father Ronald Mercier, provincial of the USA Central and Southern Province, has approved the selection.

He previously served as a teacher and athletic director at Nativity Preparatory School in Roxbury, Massachusetts, and at Nativity Mission Center in New York City.  

O’Hagan graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1987 with a bachelor's degree in English. He earned a master’s degree in teaching from Boston University.
