Profile of Philadelphia’s new CEO for Catholic high schools
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.”
