Holy Cross Names New Headmaster

 Holy Cross Names New Headmaster 

I wanted to share with you – a valued member of the Holy Cross family – that after months of due diligence and searching, the Holy Cross School Board of Directors has named Mr. Sean P. Martin (class of 1992) as Headmaster of Holy Cross School.

We are confident that Mr. Martin is the best man to take on the helm of Headmaster, ushering in the next generation of leadership at Holy Cross School. With more than 18 years’ experience as a professional educator, Mr. Martin holds an established track record of serving students through innovative and strategic programing. Furthermore, he is a second-generation Holy Cross man and holds a deep understanding of both our school’s mission and Catholic Identity.

In the coming months, I will be working closely with Mr. Martin as we prepare him to take the office of Headmaster on Saturday, July 1, 2017 following my retirement on Friday, June 30, 2017. We anticipate the transition to be seamless with no impact to current Holy Cross School students or families.

We will be issuing a public announcement regarding Mr. Martin’s appointment later today and ask that you keep this information within the Holy Cross family until that time.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the upcoming leadership transition, please do not hesitate to call my office at 504.942.1875 or email me at cdigange@holycrosstigers.com.

We ask for your prayers and continued support during this period of transition. Thank you.

FROM THE NEW ORLEANS ADVOCATE

Holy Cross School taps alumnus and educator Sean Martin to be next headmaster

Officials at Holy Cross School, the former Lower 9th Ward institution now situated in Gentilly, announced Tuesday that they have selected a New Orleans native, career educator and “second-generation Holy Cross man” as the school’s next headmaster.

Sean P. Martin, who graduated from the Catholic boys school in 1992, will start July 1. He replaces Charles J. DiGange, who is retiring after 13 years in the job.

“Mr. Martin has an intimate knowledge of the school’s history, mission and its Catholic identity,” DiGange said in a statement, adding that he is “confident” that Martin will approach the role “with the proper enthusiasm and dedication the office requires.”

James Meza, chairman of the school’s board of directors, said the hiring came after an “extensive national search” and “months of reviewing, vetting and interviewing potential candidates.” He said a search committee approved Martin unanimously.

Holy Cross, which traces its history back to 1849, is the only all-boys Catholic school in the New Orleans area to include pre-K through 12th grade. It has about 1,000 students.

Martin now is executive director of WorkReady U, which coordinates adult education programs for the Louisiana Community and Technical College System. He oversees planning for 34 providers and more than 500 employees throughout the state, serving about 40,000 students annually.

He previously served as a coordinator for the system’s Accelerating Opportunity initiative, which focused on redesigning the state’s adult education system.

Before joining the community college system, Martin worked at Delgado Community College for 15 years. He held various positions during his tenure, including director of teacher education and adult literacy.

Martin received his bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in educational administration and supervision from Our Lady of Holy Cross College, now called the University of Holy Cross.

Prior to that, he received “numerous accolades” from Holy Cross School, officials said. He graduated with honors, served in student leadership and played several varsity sports.

Martin lives in New Orleans with his wife Jenna and their five children, one of whom is a sophomore at Holy Cross School.

During an interview with The New Orleans Advocate, Martin said he sought in his previous positions to “challenge the status quo” of traditional ways of providing education. He said he will continue that mission at Holy Cross by continuing to look for and implement emerging best practices from throughout the country.

He also said he was “honored” to be going “back home.”

“I feel I have a deep understanding of the Holy Cross mission, and our Catholic identity,” Martin said. “I want Holy Cross to continue to be a beacon of lifelong learning. My goal is to continue that culture and even make it stronger.”
