Julie Sherrill at Helm of St. Gregory College Prep

Accomplished educator Julie A. Sherrill is the new head of school at St. Gregory College Preparatory School, following an 18-month national search.

She replaced Rick Belding, who retired from the independent school in June.

Sherrill served for a decade as principal at Sunrise Drive Elementary School in the Catalina Foothills School District before being named head of school at St. Gregory.

With a background in leadership at all educational levels, Sherrill began her career as a high school teacher in California and Ohio after receiving a bachelor’s degree from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, Calif.

She earned a master’s degree in education administration and a doctorate in professional development of teachers from The Ohio State University. She served as an administrator at Ohio State, then served as a high school assistant principal and a middle school principal in Ohio prior to assuming the position at Sunrise elementary.

“St. Gregory provides excellence in education through remarkable faculty and innovative, rigorous educational programs, and I am excited to carry that tradition into the future,” Sherrill said of the school, with grades 6 though 12.
