New president to serve St. Ignatius Loyola

St. Ignatius Loyola Academy in Baltimore announced John Ciccone will serve as the third president of the school, effective July 1.

“I have long wanted to return to Catholic education, especially in an urban setting,” said Mr. Ciccone, who taught at Baltimore City College for three years and served at the SEED School in Washington, D.C., as assistant head of school and head of school. “I am honored by the opportunity to serve Baltimore’s young men by leading St. Ignatius Loyola Academy in the next decade.”

Mr. Ciccone is currently administrative officer of the French International School in Bethesda.

He has a master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and he completed executive education programs at the Harvard Business School, the New Heads Institute at the National Association of Independent Schools and the Principal’s Institute at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Mr. Ciccone will succeed Jesuit Father David A. Sauter, who announced in December that he would step down as president after five years of service to the school.
