Message from the President – June 2019

Thank you for taking the time to learn about St. Michael’s College School’s Respect and Culture journey.

I take on the role of interim president with hope, faith and a determination to earn the trust of our community. I want to turn painful recent events into an opportunity for learning, healing, and change.

We want every St. Michael’s experience to be transformational and positive — as it has been for the overwhelming majority of our students and graduates.

That is why we have an action plan to change the way we do things. You can read about it on this site.

That is also why our board has engaged an independent committee of experts to do a through review of the school’s culture. The committee will report by the summer of 2019, and we are committed to implementing its recommendations.

We want to understand the truth – even if it’s hard — because only then can there be learning, healing and change.

I’m committed to transparency about our journey — while respecting the pain, privacy and sensitivity of the people who have been hurt.

I hope that St. Michael’s can take what we’ve learned to contribute to the larger conversation in our society about building cultures of respect and positivity.

We look forward to your feedback as we move forward on our Respect and Culture journey.

Yours sincerely,

Father Andrew Leung, CSB
Interim President
St. Michael’s College School
