WILMINGTON — Patrick Jordan, who has spent the 2023-24 academic year as interim principal at St. Elizabeth High School, has been named to the position on a permanent basis. The appointment was made by Father Roger DiBuo, pastor of St. Elizabeth Parish.

Jordan has been at the school since 2014, having served as a social studies teacher, social studies department chair, member of the instructional leadership team and dean of academics in addition to interim principal.

He is a graduate of West Chester University, where he received the Drayer Memorial Award for the outstanding graduating record in the history department. He received a master’s degree from Pace University.

“I view the work that we do at St. E as a vocation and hope to help the school continue to grow to its full potential in service of a new generation of learners,” Jordan said in a statement.

Father DuBuo shares Jordan’s enthusiasm for the potential of the school and said he views Jordan as “the person who can implement our school’s strategic plan with very strong Catholic values, academic excellence, and institutional stability.  Mr. Jordan’s faith is visible, he understands our Benedictine tradition, and he knows the faculty and staff well.”

Jordan attended St. John the Beloved and Salesianum schools. He and his wife, Kristin, live in north Wilmington and belong to St. Elizabeth Parish. They also attend Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.
