St. Vincent de Paul School Welcomes New Principal

| September 3, 2019 | 0 Comments

St. Vincent de Paul School of Mission Hills kicked off the school year with welcoming Steve Stutz as the new principal.

Stutz has been working in Catholic education for more than 30 years. Most recently, he served as administrator of FIAT Catholic Schools, a collaboration between the Diocese of San Diego, South Bay Parishes and Schools. Stutz has an extensive background as an educator and has previously worked at Kearny High School, Roosevelt Jr. High School, Blessed Sacrament Parish School, Holy Spirit School, St. Michael Academy, and St. Charles Catholic School. Stutz has a BA in Psychology and an MA in Education (Administration).

Stutz’s professional path pivoted with the envisioning of FIAT Catholic Schools. This was an innovative answer to the Diocese’s call to “think outside the box” as it concerns the future of Catholic schools in the region. In his role as administrator, Stutz led the research, formation, and collaboration of a regional network of 11 parishes and six elementary schools in San Diego’s South Bay Region in an effort to work together to provide quality Catholic education

“We are blessed to have Steve Stutz joining our community and leading St. Vincent’s into the future,” said Father Alex de Paulis, Pastor of St Vincent de Paul Parish. “Steve is a leader with a lifelong passion for Catholic education that will greatly benefit our school and community.”

Earlier this year Stutz was recognized by the Diocese of San Diego with the Sister Claire Patrice Lifetime Achievementin recognition of his leadership of Catholic schools and exemplary contributions to the community.
