PERSONAL INFORMATION:
 
The 2019-2020 academic year is Mike’s seventh year at St. Mary’s as school president. Over the last six years, the school has experienced a “renaissance” with many significant upgrades to school facilities and campus. These improvements include the construction of new office space, renovation of the cafeteria, locker rooms and gymnasium, and completion of a $1.2 million stadium project that included a new turf field, lights, scoreboard, and state of the art sound system. The school has also made community outreach a priority during this time highlighted by the “Our Side…Southside Day of Service.” Once a year, classes are canceled, and the entire St. Mary’s community of students, faculty, and staff go out into the surrounding neighborhoods to pick up trash, pull weeds, cut grass, etc. In 2018, the school collected more than 958 pounds of yard waste and debris.

Before coming to St. Mary’s, Mike worked at CBC High School as a math teacher, coach, assistant principal and, during his last five years there, as president of the school. In his free time, Mike is very involved with The Little Bit Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to address the needs of at-risk children to break down the barriers that prevent them from receiving a good education. He has been a board member since 2011. This year, The Little Bit Foundation will serve over 11,000 children in 37 schools throughout the metropolitan area.
 
Mr. England has a Masters Degree from the University of Missouri - St. Louis and a Bachelors Degree from Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville.

WHY ST. MARY’S?

St. Mary's has a very proud tradition in the St. Louis community serving young men since 1931. St. Mary's has also been an anchor for Catholic secondary education for the Archdiocese of St. Louis in the Carondelet neighborhood and beyond as well. I am excited to not only be a part of a school with such a rich history here on the "Southside" but to be able to join a community that functions likes a family. The St. Mary's community supports and brings out the best in each other.
