The nine Catholic high schools operated by the Archdiocese of St. Louis will have a new chief for the upcoming school year.

Todd Sweda, now president at Archbishop Hoban High in Akron, Ohio, will become superintendent of those schools beginning in July.

The archdiocesan high schools in St. Louis are: Bishop DuBourg, Cardinal Ritter, Duchesne, Rosati-Kain, St. Dominic's, St. Francis Borgia, St. Mary's, St. Pius X and Trinity.

In a statement, Sweda said he looked forward to joining the "long tradition of excellence within the Archdiocese of St. Louis."

Sweda has worked for 30 years in Catholic education in Ohio and Maryland. After graduating from Wittenberg University, he earned a master's degree from Georgetown University and a doctorate from Seton Hall University.
