Following an intensive, three-month sourcing process by our search consultants at Carney, Sandoe & Associates, the Principal Search Committee was pleased to have an opportunity to review an impressive pool of 13 highly qualified candidates from across the country.  

After much dialogue and debate, the Search Committee reduced the field to eight semi-finalists at the end of October, and then trimmed the list down to four finalists who are all believed to be excellent potential principals at St. Thomas.  We are all indebted to the Search Committee for their thoroughness and diligence in determining our finalists.

The finalists will each spend a full day at St. Thomas,  Aaron Dominguez ’96 on January 9, Brian Moscona on January 11, David Bernatavitz on January 12 and Tom Walsh on January 13.  During their respective visits, each candidate will meet with the full St. Thomas constituency including students, faculty and staff, parents, alumni, board members and Basilian Fathers.

The new principal will be announced shortly thereafter.
