Mike England

St. Mary’s High School, a Marianist-sponsored archdiocesan high school in south St. Louis, has announced that Michael F. England has been named its new president. England began in the position Sept. 3.

He previously served as teacher, coach, admissions director, administrator and president of Christian Brothers College High School. England has a master’s degree from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a bachelor’s degree from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville.

At St. Mary’s, England will work to increase student enrollment, promote and market St. Mary’s, lead fundraising efforts and manage alumni relations and outreach programs. Father Mitchell S. Doyen, who has served as president since 2008, will remain on the leadership team, together with principal Kevin Hacker and associate principal Jane Goff, to assist England in his transition.

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson said that “the excellent leadership already in place, the outstanding faculty and staff and the strong alumni support, together with Mr. England’s experience and passion for the mission of Catholic secondary education, all point to a bright future for St. Mary’s and her role in the life of the Church in St. Louis.”

George Henry, superintendent of Catholic education, said “we are eager to see Mr. Michael England continue this faith-filled mission.”

England said, “I see great potential for continued growth and improvement given the school’s outstanding faculty, staff, administration and students. Combine this with the rich history of St. Mary’s and a passionate alumni base who want their school to be the very best that it can be and I see great and exciting days ahead.”
