Saint Dominic Academy Seeks New President

“Throughout the proud history of Saint Dominic Academy,
many operational changes have come to pass,
but its focus on faith, integrity, service, and academic excellence has never wavered.”
---Bishop Deeley

AUBURN---In continuing its commitment to promoting faith, service, and academic excellence, Saint Dominic Academy will reorganize its leadership to enhance student recruitment and retention, fundraising, and services to the school community.

The academy seeks a new president to oversee development, marketing, and enrollment efforts at both the Auburn (Grade 6-12) and Lewiston (PK-Grade 5) campuses.

“The president will ensure that the school’s mission and Catholic identity are promoted and preserved,” said Jim King, superintendent of Maine Catholic Schools. “We are looking for someone who is committed to preparing well-rounded, value-centered individuals and to pursuing exciting new avenues to grow the academy.”

Donald Fournier will serve as the president/principal of the academy until a new president is hired. Fournier will become the full-time principal of the Auburn campus upon the appointment of a new president.

“I’m looking forward to overseeing the day-to-day academic initiatives at the Auburn campus and having the opportunity to more closely support schoolwide goals,” said Fournier, who served as principal at the academy for eight years prior to assuming the president’s role in 2014. “I’m very passionate about working with our families and teachers directly and being hands on in bringing our strategic plan to fruition.”

Marianne Pelletier will continue as the principal of the Lewiston campus, a position she has held since June of 2016. Pelletier will collaborate with Fournier and the new president in helping to guide the school, which is now in its 77th year of existence. 

“These changes will assure that the true Catholic identity of the school is preserved while all possibilities for innovative progress are fully explored,” said Bishop Robert P. Deeley. “Throughout the proud history of Saint Dominic Academy, many operational changes have come to pass, but its focus on faith, integrity, service, and academic excellence has never wavered.”
