Kathleen McNutt, principal of St. Louis School in Alexandria, has been named head of school at Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria effective July 1. McNutt succeeds Thomas J. Curry.

"I am very pleased to appoint Kathleen McNutt as head of school at Bishop Ireton High School,” said Bishop Michael F. Burbidge. “I look forward to collaborating with Kathleen in the next chapter of Bishop Ireton's outstanding history."

McNutt already has several connections to Ireton. She is the mother of three alumni and two current students, including a daughter who will graduate this year. Her husband, Geoff, graduated from Ireton in 1987. She serves as a member of the school’s board of governors.

She has been a parishioner of St. Louis Church since 1977 and she attended St. Louis School from third through eighth grade. She graduated from St. Mary's Academy in Alexandria, which was Ireton’s "sister school.” She earned a bachelor of science degree from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, specializing in early childhood education and developmental reading. She earned a master’s in educational administration and supervision from Marymount University in Arlington. She has a K-12 supervision license from the state of Virginia.

McNutt, who taught in public and private schools in Northern Virginia, began teaching at St. Louis in 2009. She was named Early Childhood Licensure Director in 2011 and headed the St. Louis Preschool Project in 2011-12, overseeing the business plan, construction process and educational implementation process.
