School Leadership

Alan Carruthers

President

An established leader in Jesuit education, Alan Carruthers brought 22 years of critical formational experience to SLUH when he began in 2018. During his tenure, he led the Go Forth campaign to its successful completion, investing more than $71 million in financial aid, campus improvements and student programming. Throughout the campaign, he oversaw: planning and construction of The J. Anthony ‘57 and Donna M. Dill Center for Academic Success and the James Guth Costigan ‘62 Innovation Lab; establishment of a dedicated College Counseling department and a robust Global Education program; and the acquisition and renovation of the Madonna della Strada Retreat Center.

Under Carruthers' leadership, SLUH has reinforced its position as a top-tier Jesuit secondary school by: expanding academic and faith formation programming; maintaining a strong enrollment; doubling the school endowment; and engaging the Board of Trustees in developing a strategic vision for diversity, equity and inclusion.

Prior to SLUH, Carruthers served as Principal at Regis Jesuit High School - Boys Division in Denver, Vice Principal and teacher at St. Paul’s Jesuit High School in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and a teacher and coach at Rockhurst High School in Kansas City. He holds an M.S. in Educational Administration from St. Joseph's University.

Fr. Matthew Stewart, SJ '98

Principal

Since entering the Society of Jesus in 2009, Fr. Stewart has demonstrated strong leadership in mission-based programming roles and executive level governance in Jesuit schools throughout the Central and Southern Province. He previously served as adjunct professor at Saint Louis University, Associate Director of the Alum Service Corps, chaplain and teacher at Loyola Academy, and Associate University Minister and faculty member at Regis University. He serves on the Board of Trustees at Rockhurst University and on the SLUH Board of Members.

Throughout his rich experience in Jesuit education, Fr. Stewart is well known for his commitment to cura personalis, caring well for students and colleagues, relationship building and collaborative leadership. A Christ-centered, mission-driven, dynamic and passionate individual, he is the first SLUH alumnus to assume the role of principal since Bob Bannister ‘54 (1995-2002) and the first Jesuit alumnus since Fr. Leo Dressel, SJ ’64 (1979-83).

Fr. Stewart holds several degrees, including a Licentiate in Sacred Theology (Liturgy and Sacraments) from Boston College; a Master of Music in Choral Conducting from the University of Denver; a M.A. in Philosophical Resources from Fordham University; and a M.A. in Theology from Saint Louis University with highest distinction.
