This is an exciting and unique leadership opportunity, one that could result in the creation of a new national model in diocesan school education. Under the visionary leadership of Bishop William Murphy, a new plan has been developed to ensure the future of
the Diocese’s schools and to raise their profile and value proposition in the community. A reorganized 501(c)(3) Education Corporation (Department of Education, Diocese of Rockville Centre) has been established to house educational operations in the Diocese. This will include a prominent Board of Trustees and a new Chief Executive Officer to drive change and accountability across the system of diocesan schools.
The Diocese seeks a dynamic and entrepreneurial leader with passion for mission and ardent Catholic identity to launch this bold initiative.
The Chief Executive Officer will have an opportunity to work with the Bishops and all stakeholders, partners, and donors of the diocesan schools in creating a sustainable enrollment strategy while realigning resources and personnel to achieve greater impact.
This is a truly a unique opportunity to make a difference for children, families, and Catholic schools. The Catholic people of the Diocese of Rockville Centre comprise the Roman Catholic Community of Long
Island, New York. As part of a sacramental community united under Bishop William Murphy, the People of God of the Diocese strive to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ as one family of faith. As a family, members of the Diocese celebrate this Gospel life in their liturgy, sacraments, prayer, service and education.
Over 28,000 students are engaged in Catholic education within the Diocese, including 16,597 students in 47 Catholic Elementary Schools and 11,710 students in 10 Catholic high schools. The diocesan education department participates in the mission of the church by promoting and fostering excellence in Catholic school
education, fulfilling its purpose by affirming and supporting all members of the educational community, empowering them to witness to the Gospel and rendering service with compassion. The educators within the Diocese believe that education empowers people with the critical abilities to think, reason, judge, and create,
and they promote these core values to their students while they provide them with a strong faith formation program in which faith is taught, service to others is encouraged, and the education of the whole person is valued and celebrated.
Educators in the Diocese believe that Catholic schools are 21st century learning communities in which the Gospel of Jesus is taught, lived, and experienced on a daily basis. In the Diocese’s 57 schools, educators balance quality curricula and instruction with a strong moral foundation and spiritual development, preparing
students for faith-filled, productive lives.
The Mission of the Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Rockville Centre is to foster an environment of spiritual and intellectual growth by integrating Catholic tradition and faith throughout the educational process. This is accomplished by the promotion of Gospel values, lifelong service, global awareness, and academic excellence that prepares our students to be compassionate; as well as critical and creative thinkers, in an ever changing society.
