Profile of Philadelphia’s new CEO for Catholic high schools
CWN - October 09, 2012
In August, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced that an independent lay foundation would operate its 17 high schools and four special-education schools.
The foundation’s new CEO, Samuel Casey Carter, has a background in great books, theology, and philosophy, holding degrees from St. John’s College (Annapolis), Oxford, and Catholic University of America. He is also former president of National Heritage Academies, a for-profit charter school management company.
“I’ve spent most of my career discovering what works in the education of the young,” said Carter, “and working with others to replicate it.”
