St. Michael’s employs a President/Principal model at the school. In this powerful model, executive functions are elegantly aligned around two distinct leadership profiles: the outward-facing entrepreneur and the institution-builder (President), and the inward-facing academician and champion of teaching, learning, discipline, and safety (Principal).
