Interim President Selected for 2022-2023 Academic Year

We are pleased to announce that Susan Niden, the retired and distinguished Principal at Jackson School in Newton, MA, has been selected as Interim President for the 2022-2023 academic year. 

Susan led Jackson School, a Catholic coeducational institution for students in grades K through sixth, as Principal for 29 years before retiring in 2019 to serve as an Educational Consultant for the C.S.O. Archdiocese of Boston, where she has helped guide principals in professional growth. An education major, Susan earned her B.A. from SUNY College at New Paltz, M.S. from Syracuse University, and a C.A.S. in Educational Administration from SUNY College at Oswego. Prior to her arrival at  Jackson School, Susan served as Principal of Keith Catholic School in Lowell.

We see JPII as a wonderful fit for Susan’s skills and experience. A highly relational and faith-filled leader who has worked diligently to create trusting relationships, Susan is thrilled to be named Interim President and sees JPII’s mission as central to her life as a Catholic educator.

Susan is looking forward to meeting the JPII community on September 20, in a morning (8:15 A.M.) and evening (5:00 P.M.) Welcome Reception in the Academic Resource Center. All are invited to attend.
