Provincial Assistant for Secondary and Pre-Secondary Education Transitions to Province High School

Sean Agniel, provincial assistant for secondary and pre-secondary education for the Jesuits USA Central and Southern Province, will leave his province position to become advancement chief of staff for St. Louis University High School (SLUH). His last day as a member of the province staff is June 30. 

“Sean has played an important role in the life of the province,” said Provincial Ronald A. Mercier, SJ. “He has displayed a consistent commitment to the Jesuit and Catholic character of our schools and has worked tirelessly to nurture our charism among all who share in this ministry. He has provided wise counsel to me, to the staff, and to our schools.”

He has served as provincial assistant for secondary and pre-secondary education since 2010. In addition to advising the provincial, he oversees relationships with the 12 high schools and one middle school in this province and works with them to ensure their Jesuit, Catholic identity. 

For the past six years, he has also served on the board of directors of the Jesuit Schools Network (formerly the Jesuit Secondary Education Association), the last two as chair. The Jesuit Schools Network promotes the educational ministry of the Society of Jesus in service to the Catholic Church by strengthening Jesuit schools for the mission of Jesus Christ.

“As founding chair of the Jesuit Schools Network Board, Sean has helped create a new relationship between the Society of Jesus in the U.S. and Canada and our secondary and pre-secondary schools,” Fr. Mercier said. “We will miss him, but rejoice that his gifts will enrich SLUH.”

Agniel joined the former Missouri Province as provincial assistant for social and international ministries in 2007. In that role, he also served as director of the Ignatian Volunteer Corps and the Alum Service Corps for the former province. 

At SLUH, Agniel will join the advancement office team that includes communications, events, annual giving, and alumni relations and is responsible for ensuring that students who are qualified to attend SLUH will be accepted regardless of the family’s ability to pay tuition. SLUH currently provides about $4 million in direct aid annually. His first day will be August 1.
