News Release
Jesuit High School Announces New Principal (Photo) - 04/28/22

BEAVERTON, Ore. (Apr. 28, 2022) – Jesuit High School has appointed Khalid Maxie as the school’s twelfth principal. Mr. Maxie currently serves as Jesuit’s Vice Principal of Academics and Student Life, and has worked in administrative roles at Jesuit for the last decade. 

A national and comprehensive search for Jesuit’s next principal was led by a Search Committee in partnership with Mathew Heersche  and Risa Oganesoff Heersche, the Catholic education specialists of the national search firm Educational Directions, and with consultant Melissa Ulum. 

All applicants for the position had outstanding backgrounds, and the pool included geographic, racial and gender diversity. Four impressive finalists visited Jesuit’s campus in April and met with various constituents.

“After thoughtful and prayerful discernment that included input received from members of our school community who participated in this process, it is my immense privilege to announce that Khalid Maxie has been appointed as the twelfth principal of Jesuit High School and will assume his duties on July 1, 2022,” said Jesuit High School President Thomas D. Arndorfer. 

For the last 10 years, Mr. Maxie has served in administrative roles at Jesuit High School, including Vice Principal and Dean of Students and Security. He also served as Summer Session Director from 2013-2019. Mr. Maxie currently serves as Jesuit’s Vice Principal of Academics and Student Life and is a member of the Board of Trustees’ Finance Committee and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. Mr. Maxie led recent initiatives in accreditation and the development of Jesuit’s School Improvement Plan priorities, and co-led the community-wide mascot input and evaluation process. 

“I am overcome with joy and gratitude for the appointment to principal. I am looking forward to partnering with my colleagues in this sacred vocation while serving our students,” said Mr. Maxie. 

Although he assumes the duties of principal on July 1, Mr. Maxie will continue serving Jesuit High School as Vice Principal of Academics and Student Life until that time, and the school will continue to operate effectively and efficiently. Gratitude goes to the other Vice Principals, as well as the Leadership Team, all of whom have stepped up in significant ways to keep Jesuit running smoothly.

“This is an exciting inflection point in Jesuit’s history as we move our institution forward and chart its bright future,” said President Thomas D. Arndorfer. “Congratulations to Mr. Maxie and his wife, Theresa ’97, their two children, and their extended family. We wish him continued success in his vocation and ask God’s blessing on him, his family, and our school community as he embarks on this important leadership role.”
