Anthony I. Day has been named new upper school principal of Loyola Blakefield, Towson, to succeed Christopher J. Post. Mr. Day is currently assistant principal at Regis High School, N.Y.
His deep-rooted principles in Jesuit education and his experienced maturity as an educator and leader is part of what attracted the search committee to Mr. Day.
He holds a bachelor of arts degree in English from St. Peter’s College, N.J.; a master of science in education from Fordham University, N.Y.; and a master of letters from Drew University, N.J.
Mr. Post has had previous interaction with Mr. Day. “He’s impressed me as a tremendously insightful leader who recognizes the balance between mission of the institution and supporting the needs of the individuals,” he said, “… articulate, creative, and perceptive … I look forward to Loyola growing in surprisingly new and different ways under his leadership.”
Mr. Day is an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion in his Westfield, N.J. parish and has extensive involvement with Jesuit academia and professional organizations.
He will relocate to the Baltimore area with his wife, Laura, and three young children; his post is effective July 1.
