The child has one intuitive aim: self development

And the New School Principal is …

Tim O’Loughlin

I am excited to announce that the next principal for St. Christopher School is Tim O’Loughlin! He will officially begin July 1st. I extend my gratitude to the members of the Principal Search Committee who spent many hours in the search for the right person for this very important position in our parish. And I can’t say “THANK YOU” enough to Paul Beyerle for stepping into the role of Interim Principal at a critical point in School history and setting the stage for continued success for many years to come.

A message from Mr. O’Loughlin

Hello St. Christopher Community!

My name is Tim O’Loughlin and I am thrilled to introduce myself as the new principal of St. Christopher School. I am blessed and honored to have been selected for such an important leadership position in our great school and parish.

My wife, Amy, and I have been parishioners at St. Christopher for 20 years and our three daughters, Caitlin (25), Abby (23) and Carly (21), are St. Christopher alumnae, so we know first-hand that St. Christopher School is a special place.  For the last five years, I have taught freshman and sophomore religion at Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School, so I know that St. Christopher graduates continue to be the best academically prepared and spiritually formed students in the area. I am excited to continue this great tradition, as well as explore new ways to enhance the student and family experience at St. Christopher.

Before CJ, I enjoyed a successful business career in various leadership positions  with both small and large companies where I developed valuable  management and operational skills.  As for formal education, I  have a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Notre Dame, a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Dayton, and a master’s degree in theology from Franciscan  University  of  Steubenville. Each of these experiences and degrees have shaped me in different ways, but all of them combined have uniquely prepared me to be the principal at St. Christopher School.

In closing, I really cannot express how excited I am to work with  St. Christopher’s  great faculty and staff in offering the very best Christ-centered student experience possible. A critical part of that mission is meeting with parents, getting to know them, and learning about their needs and dreams for their children; I look forward to that as well.

In Christ,

Tim O’Loughlin
