St. Michael’s College School appoints new principal

Third alumni in a row to lead Forest Hill school for boys

St. Michael’s College School has appointed a new principal, drawing from alumni for the third time in a row.

Greg Reeves, who graduated from the independent Forest Hill school for boys in 1967, will assume his new role on Sept. 1.

“I’m very excited,” Reeves told the Town Crier. “I had a great experience at St. Mike’s and I saw this as an opportunity for me to go home and give back a little.”

St. Michael’s president, Father Jefferson Thompson, said he chose Reeves because of his 37-year history in public Catholic education, in addition to his connection to the school.

“He knows the culture, the history, the ethos of our school which, combined with all of that experience outside of St. Michael’s, will bring a fresh perspective to address quality issues and concerns that any school has moving into the future,” Fr. Thompson said.

Starting as a teacher with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board in 1978, Reeves became a vice principal in 1985, a principal in 1989 and a superintendent in 2004 with the Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board.

Reeves will be replacing Dr. Terence Sheridan, who graduated from St. Michael’s in 1989. He is leaving after five years to serve as headmaster of Northmount School, a private Catholic elementary school for boys located near York Mills and Don Mills roads.

Sheridan’s predecessor, Joe Brisbois, graduated from St. Michael’s in 1967.
