Cathedral High taps a BC High VP as its new head of school

Dan Carmody

Dan Carmody, vice president for Global Mission and Identity at Boston College High School for the last 13 years, is leaving the Morrissey Blvd. campus to become head of school at Cathedral High School in the South End. Carmody joined BC High in 2007, serving in the Guidance Department for several years before being named Director of International Programs in 2011.

“Dan has helped to bring not just global citizenship, but global leadership to BC High,” said the school’s president, Grace Regan, citing his “spirit of dedication to growth and learning through travel. … Our entire community owes him thanks – not just for bringing the world to BC High, but for bringing us to the world.”

Carmody extended his gratitude to the BC High community for his experience at the school, saying, “Seeing the transformation in BC High students as their global perspective, curiosity and wisdom grew and expanded was more than I ever hoped for when I arrived 13 years ago. I’ll always be indebted to the people who gave me an opportunity to be a small part of a big mission, and will miss the students, families, faculty, and staff that make BC High such a remarkable place.”
