Rev. Christopher Scott Fronk, S.J, has been named the next president of Jesuit High School of New Orleans.

The 50-year-old Jesuit priest is currently serving as a command chaplain in the United States Navy with the rank of commander. 

Fr. Fronk will begin his new assignment as the school's 30th president in November 2016. This announcement from Jesuit's Board of Directors comes after Fr. Raymond Fitzgerald, S.J. stepped down in January of 2014 after being diagnosed with ALS. Fr. Fitzgerald, a 1976 alumnus of Jesuit, served as president from 2011-2014.

His selection comes after an 18-month search of both Jesuits and laity from across the nation.

Fr. Fronk is a native of Monaca, Pennsylvania. He received his bachelor's degree in philosophy in 1989 from Saint Louis University before earning his master's degree in theology from Heythrop College of the University of London in 1996. In 2001, he secured a second master's degree in religious education from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. Fr. Fronk earned a third master's degree in military studies with an emphasis on leadership, planning, and strategy from the Marine Corps University Command and Staff College in Quantico, Virginia.
