 — St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy has announced that Jennifer Mallett has been hired as the new head of school. She will assume the role in July.

Mallett earned a bachelor’s degree in education from Ashland University and a master’s degree in education and allied professions from the University of Dayton. Since 2010, she has been head of school at Bishop Rosecrans High School in Zanesville, Ohio.

Mallett holds certificates in innovative leadership, enrollment management and marketing from Catholic School Management. She has served in numerous volunteer roles for the Diocese of Columbus and the Ohio Catholic Schools Accrediting Association.

“We’re thrilled that Jennifer agreed to join our team,” said Rob Thomas, president of the board of trustees for St. Joseph’s. “Her proven track record in Catholic education, along with experience in Catholic school enrollment, marketing and development, are a perfect fit.”
Interim head of school Jean Kozak will return to her role as St. Joseph’s guidance counselor. Kozak took on the interim position following the departure of Chris Chirieleison, who served as head of school for four years.

“Jean did an outstanding job shepherding St. Joseph’s through this transition period, and our entire faculty stepped up to make it a seamless experience for our students and families,” Thomas said. “We’re looking forward to another great year in 2018-19, marked by continued growth in enrollment and community support.”

Founded in 2011, St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy provides a Christ-centered, college preparatory environment in which students grow, develop and live out the four pillars of faith, scholarship, leadership and service to God, fellow students, families and community.
