After completing a national search, the Board of Trustees of Nativity School of Worcester announced today the appointment of Patrick T. Maloney as the new President of the school effective immediately. Maloney has served as the Interim President since July 2016.
“We have had the opportunity to observe Pat in the role as Interim President over the last six months. He has done an excellent job,” said Board Chairman J. Christopher Collins. “Nativity Worcester is thriving and we believe Pat is well suited to help us achieve the outstanding elements of our strategic plan. Pat has earned the respect of our faculty and administration, our current students, our graduates, and our donors. He is very familiar with the Worcester community, which has shown increasing support to the school each year since our founding. He is also accustomed to the demands and rewards of a Jesuit education. Our goal at Nativity Worcester is to provide each of our students with a rigorous education that sets them on a path to achieve their full potential and to learn the joys of living a generous life focused on the well-being of others. We have great confidence that Pat will foster our goals, build on our success and lead us to a positive next chapter.”

It is a tremendous honor to be given this opportunity. I am committed to fulfilling the school’s mission by serving those in our community in need of a quality, all-scholarship education,” said Maloney.
