Jeremy Clifford Named Next President of St. Ignatius School

March 26, 2018 - This past fall, St. Ignatius School in the Bronx began a search to replace its beloved president, Eavan O’Driscoll. On March 26, they announced that the search committee, board of trustees and board of members have all approved Jeremy Clifford as the next president.

Jeremy most recently worked at The Taft School in Watertown, Conn., where he served as dean of academic affairs, as well as a math and economics teacher since 2006. In 2011, Jeremy and his wife founded a local summer enrichment program for inner city middle and high school students in Waterbury and the surrounding communities that has grown to accommodate over 80 students each summer and continues to thrive today. 

Originally from Staten Island, N.Y., Jeremy will be returning to his hometown city. Jeremy is a product of Jesuit education, having graduated from Regis High School in New York. He went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Yale University and an M.B.A. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Jeremy and his wife Laura have three children. He will officially begin his role as president commencing July 1, 2018.

St. Ignatius School empowers students in the South Bronx to become their best selves by creating a safe and nurturing community that fosters intellectual, spiritual, and social growth. St. Ignatius School is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty through education by providing a quality Jesuit education both in and beyond the classroom to children of deserving but underserved families in the community.
