Rebore Named Associate Provincial Assistant for Secondary Education

May 24, 2018 - Ronald Rebore will become the next associate provincial assistant for secondary and pre-secondary education for the Jesuits USA Central and Southern (UCS) Province. He replaces Pete Musso, who served admirably in the role for the past four years. 

Rebore brings 20 years of experience in Jesuit education, having served in various roles at De Smet Jesuit High School in St. Louis County, including history teacher, professional development coordinator, interim principal and assistant principal for staff development. He is well prepared for his work with the province’s 13 secondary and presecondary schools, especially in the areas of Ignatian formation, faculty evaluation and school accreditation. 

He also has direct experience with province programs, serving on the planning committee for the province’s annual New Ignatian Educators retreat and teaching at De Smet as a member of the Alum Service Corp in 1998-99.

Rebore is the product of Jesuit education himself, having graduated from De Smet and Saint Louis University, where he earned his doctorate in education in 2012. He also completed the Jesuit Secondary Education Association (now Jesuit Schools Network) Seminars in Ignatian Leadership just a few years earlier.

Dr. Pete Musso

Dr. Pete Musso leaves the province office of Secondary and Pre-Secondary Education after four years.

Rebore will begin his new role on July 2. 

Pete Musso leaves the province staff to serve at De Smet Jesuit High School as assistant principal for curriculum and instruction. During his four years in the secondary and presecondary education office, he helped create several new programs, all aimed at helping faculty and staff deepen their experience of Ignatian spirituality while also honing their skills in their roles as teachers and administrators. Chief among these has been the Leaders in the Middle program, through which new department chairs and program directors learn how to become more effective and faith-filled leaders in our schools. He has also led the Alum Service Corps, through which college graduates give a year of service in province schools as teachers, coaches and mentors, and he has been instrumental in running the New Ignatian Educators retreat every winter for new faculty and staff.
