Head of School Search

After 14 years of exceptional leadership, our Head of School, Shawn O’Donnell, has announced that he will retire at the end of the 2022-2023 academic year. This news was met with tremendous admiration for his accomplishments, appreciation for his service and dedication and nostalgia for the end of this chapter in our school’s history.

The Sacred Heart School of Montreal has flourished under Mr. O’Donnell’s leadership and his passion, vision and dedication to our mission have positioned Sacred Heart for future success. We are most grateful for all that he has done for Sacred Heart throughout his tenure. It has provided the Sacred Heart community a strong foundation and direction thus enabling a strong trust and transparency between all community members including parents, staff and students.

As the school searches for its next leader, this page will serve as a resource for information about the search for and transition to a new Head of School.
