Arrupe Jesuit High School Names Next President

Dec. 7, 2017 - Darren A. Walsh, chair of the board of trustees of Arrupe Jesuit High School in Denver, today announced the selection of Michael J. O'Hagan as the next president of Arrupe Jesuit High School. Very Rev. Ronald Mercier, SJ, provincial of the USA Central and Southern Province, has approved the selection.

Currently serving as principal of Arrupe Jesuit, O’Hagan will assume his new role on July 1, 2018. Until that time, he will work closely with the current president, Fr. Tim McMahon, SJ, to develop a smooth transition plan.

O'Hagan has served as principal of Arrupe Jesuit High School since its founding in 2003. He has played a critical role in forming the student educational experience in the Jesuit, Catholic tradition. His demonstrated leadership, combined with his deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing Arrupe Jesuit over the next decade, will be key drivers to ensure the future success of the school.

Prior to working at Arrupe Jesuit, Mr. O'Hagan worked as a teacher and athletic director at Bishop Machebeuf High School in Denver from 1995 to 2003. He previously served as a teacher and athletic director at Nativity Preparatory School in Roxbury, Massachusetts, and at Nativity Mission Center in New York City.  

O’Hagan graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1987 with a bachelor's degree in English. He earned a master’s degree in teaching from Boston University. 

Arrupe Jesuit High School is a Roman Catholic, co-educational, college preparatory school sponsored by the Jesuits of this province. Arrupe Jesuit serves economically disadvantaged students from Denver’s low-income neighborhoods. It is part of the Cristo Rey Network of schools and serves 420 students.
