In July of 2019, I took on the responsibilities of leading Bishop Eustace Preparatory High School in the dual capacity of Principal and Head of School. Having learned about the history of Bishop Eustace and how the charism of the Pallottines was infused into life at this school, I saw a unique opportunity to serve our young people. The environment here is unlike any other I’ve seen. The members of our community have a zeal for the school that is unparalleled.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve witnessed the incredible strength of our students, parents, administrators, faculty, staff members, and alumni —everyone who breathes life into the Bishop Eustace of today.
I’ve seen strength of character and strength of conviction. I’ve seen deep spiritual fortitude —faith in God and in one another. I see people creating a Eustace family that lifts every student to greater understanding and achievement — inside and out of our school’s walls. Those students and what we can help them achieve are my highest priority.
Through students, families, alumni, clergy, faculty, and staff, I have seen how this strength underpins and fortifies our mission of academic excellence and Christian service. And for that reason, I am committed to investing in policies and resources that will continue to foster strength in every Crusader.
A large part of that commitment is continued and open communication with all of you. I want our dialogue to be open and ongoing. So, I invite you to email me
with your thoughts about what we can do to ensure Eustace exceeds your expectations for what a private Catholic high school can deliver.
I look forward to meeting you and hearing from you soon. And I am committed to working with you in the months and years to come to foster strength in every Bishop Eustace student.
Mary, Queen of the Apostles, Pray for Us!
Your Sister in Christ,
Julie Shively, Ed.D.
Principal and Head of School, Bishop Eustace Prep
