Tom Malone will serve Cristo Rey Jesuit High School

The new principal of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore is no novice when it comes to launching new schools. Tom Malone assisted in the launches of a charter high school on Cape Cod and a small independent school in Toronto.

As Cristo Rey begins its inaugural year, the parishioner of St. Francis of Assisi in Baltimore said he is “very enthusiastic” and “blessed” to be a part of it. The new school features a work-study program and is targeted at city students from low-income families.

“We want to focus on preparing all of our students for college success by providing a high-quality college prep program, along with support for our students and their families,” said Mr. Malone, noting that the school will open with a freshmen class of 120.

The new principal said Cristo Rey will offer academic support in the form of an extra reading class and math tutoring.

“Our full-time counselor and dean of students will provide student and family services,” he said.
Born and raised in Canada, Mr. Malone earned a bachelor’s degree in government from Harvard University. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of New Brunswick and a master’s degree in education from the University of Toronto.

Mr. Malone is a former teacher and department chair at Maryvale Preparatory School in Brooklandville and a teacher at The Park School of Baltimore.
