Cristo Rey High School (Sacramento) Names New President

Cristo Rey High School in Sacramento announced the appointment of David Perry as incoming president, effective July 1. He comes to Cristo Rey with more than 15 years of educational experience, primarily in Catholic education as a school administrator who is mission-driven in K-8 and 9-12 settings. He is known for his leadership, building community, supporting faculty and staff, and creating an inclusive learning environment for students.

Perry began his educational career as a teacher at Concord High School in 2000. Four years later, he joined Encina High School in the San Juan Unified School District as a vice principal. In 2007, Perry joined St. James School in Davis as an interim eighth grade teacher and shortly thereafter became the principal. In 2012, he joined St. Andrew Catholic School in Cape Coral, Fla., as principal. He returned to California in 2014 to join St. Patrick – St. Vincent Catholic School in Sacramento. Perry has served as president since that time.

All of Perry’s educational degrees are from Saint Mary’s College of California, including a Master’s of Science in business administration with a concentration in finance and a second Master’s in arts education leadership. He is expected to receive his doctorate in educational leadership later this year.

Perry’s wife of 17 years, Susan Perry, is a third grade teacher at St. James Catholic School in Davis. They have three young children.
