AURORA – Marmion Academy headmaster James Quaid will step down at the end of June to become the principal at Gordon Tech College Prep, a Catholic high school on Chicago’s north side.

“We are so thankful for the dedication, guidance, leadership and expertise that Dr. Quaid has shared with Marmion Academy during the past two years,” Abbot John Brahill O.S.B., president of Marmion, said in a news release Friday. “We wish him God’s blessings on the next phase of his career as a Catholic educator.”

Brahill will be engaged in the process of choosing the next headmaster during the coming weeks, the release stated. As headmaster, Quaid enhanced Marmion’s Student Services Department; expanded the summer school program; increased technology in the classroom by giving teachers access to computers and increasing available bandwidth; revised the freshman orientation process; and offered additional support and education in regard to behavioral health, Brahill said.
