Central Catholic High School Announces New Principal
Mr. Michael Wohlfarth brings over 35 years of educational
experience to Texas’ oldest school for boys
SAN ANTONIO, TX –Friday, June 24, 2016– Central Catholic High School announced today the appointment of Mr. Michael Wohlfarth as the school’s new principal. Mr. Wohlfarth joins our distinguished school community after having served as Schertz-Cibolo Universal City Independent School District’s Director of Secondary Education and was formerly the principal at Byron P. Steele II High School from 2008-2015. He will replace Mr. Paul Garro, President of Central Catholic High School, who had served as both principal and president during the 2015-16 school year.
“Mike’s experience as an educator for 35 years has prepared him to be a transformational leader for our school. Under his guidance, Central Catholic will continue to develop young men of character through faith, leadership, and academics,” said Paul Garro, president of Central Catholic. “Our Marianist tradition of excellence, both in and outside the classroom, is in great hands.”
Working with Central Catholic leadership, Partners in Mission School Leadership Search Solutions, based in Boston, MA, provided search counsel and conducted an extensive nationwide search of qualified candidates for the Principal position. Finalists from across the country were then submitted to our search committee and invited to visit our campus and school community. The search committee included, parents, faculty, alumni and board members who interviewed and vetted finalists for recommendation to our Board of Directors by Paul Garro.
Mr. Wohlfarth began his career as a teacher and coach in Northside Independent School District at Pat Neff Middle School in 1981. In 1985 he moved to John Marshall High School, where he spent 10 years teaching and coaching before transitioning into the role of Vice Principal at Clemens High School. From 2001 to 2008, Mr. Wohlfarth served as the Principal at Dobie Junior High School, later moving to Steele High School as Principal in 2008. After dedicating many years in schools, he decided to move to the central office where he worked as the district’s Director of Secondary Education in 2015, where he was responsible for advanced curriculum design, staff development and extracurricular activities. Mr. Wohlfarth holds a Bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s University and a Master’s degree from Texas A&I University (now Texas A&M – Kingsville).
“Central Catholic has been an educational leader in San Antonio since 1852. I am honored and proud to join such an amazing community devoted to developing young men in the Marianist tradition,” said Wolhfarth. “My father was a graduate from the class of 1949 and I grew up hearing stories of how Central helped shape him into the man he became. I am blessed to be able to serve this incredible school and look forward to working with the students, parents, faculty, and staff.”
