Meet the New Head of School

You are here

The Sisters of the Sacred Hearts and the Academy's Board of Directors, the school’s governing organizations, are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Scott Schroeder as Sacred Hearts Academy's new Head of School. Dr. Schroeder will officially begin serving as Head of School on July 1, 2019. Until then, Betty White will continue as Head of School, where her career at Sacred Hearts Academy has spanned 48 years -- as a teacher for 20 years, followed by Head of School, a position she has held for 28 years. 

After a nation-wide search and extensive due diligence, conducted by recruiting firm Kumabe HR and Sacred Hearts Academy’s Head of School Selection Committee, Dr. Schroeder was selected, making him the first male to serve as Head of School at the all-female Academy since it opened in 1909. Dr. Schroeder has spent his entire career in education, serving in faculty and leadership positions since 1996. His Christian-based values also reflect his life-long affiliation in Catholic education as a student and faculty member, making him the best candidate to lead the Academy in the 21st century. Dr. Schroeder currently serves as Dean of the School of Business and Communication and Professor of Management at Chaminade University of Honolulu.
