St. Martin’s Episcopal School Names New Head of Upper School
Charles Latour will begin his new role in July 2022
Ford J. Dieth, Jr. ’89, Interim Head of School at St. Martin’s Episcopal, announced yesterday that Charles Latour has been named the next Head of Upper School at St. Martin’s Episcopal School, and will begin his new role in July 2022 with a wealth of educational experience. Latour is the Director of Enrollment Management at Trinity Episcopal School in New Orleans, where he has increased retention and new student enrollment. Before moving to Trinity, he was the Head of School at Archbishop Hannan High School in Covington for ten years. He served in a wide variety of positions at other schools prior to that.
Latour brings stellar academic qualifications to St. Martin’s. He earned a B.S. from Purdue University and a J.D. from Boston College School of Law, followed by an M.Div. and M.A.T. from Aquinas Institute of Theology, and an M.Ed. from the University of Dayton. He has almost completed the requirements for ordination to the Anglican priesthood.
He looks forward to leading the Upper School, embracing the School’s mission of preparing students to thrive in college and in life while holding fast to the ideals of faith, scholarship, and service. “My primary passion [is] serving and supporting students in discovering and building on their innate strengths and gifts,” Latour says. He is committed to building a thriving high school and is excited about “St. Martin’s reputation for fostering a strong sense of community, its commitment to providing a diverse and inclusive environment, and its academic and spiritual formation.”
