Claire Pitz begins leadership of Towson Catholic

Claire Pitz believes Towson Catholic High School is among the best-kept secrets in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. As the school’s new principal, she wants to change that.
“I think that information about the school needs to get out to more,” said the parishioner of St. Mary, Pylesville. “It’s a great school that a lot of people don’t know about.”
Ms. Pitz said she will look at ways of advertising the strengths of Towson Catholic. She also plans to have the school represented at more high school recruiting events.
While Towson Catholic attracts students from 32 ZIP codes, Ms. Pitz said there is “a lot of room for growth.” There are currently about 250 students enrolled.
“I want to get to know the school and the community and to do the best job I can do to have the best programs for students,” she said.
Ms. Pitz was the principal of Notre Dame Preparatory School in Towson for nine years. She previously taught at St. Mary of the Assumption School in Govans, Archbishop Keough School in Baltimore, Notre Dame Preparatory School in Towson and with the Baltimore County public schools.
Ms. Pitz holds a bachelor’s degree in English and secondary education from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, Baltimore; a master’s degree in the liberal arts program at The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore; and a master’s equivalency in education administration and supervision from the University of Maryland.
