Kevin Kijewski, superintendent of Denver Catholic schools, has accepted a new position as the superintendent of archdiocesan schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit. He begins his new post Dec. 4.
”I want to thank everyone for their support of our Catholic schools,” Kijewski said. “Additionally, from the time I arrived here in Denver, everyone in the archdiocesan family has embraced me with open arms. For that, I am forever grateful. I will always be thankful for the opportunity to contribute to the success of our students and our school system.”
Kijewski has served as superintendent of Denver Catholic schools since 2015. Prior to that, he was associate superintendent of secondary schools in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
During his tenure as superintendent in Denver, the Office of Catholic Schools launched two vision documents, “Worthy of the Name” and “Worthy of the Investment,” and they also opened a new school in the Thornton area, Frassati Catholic Academy.
Of his time in Denver, Kijewski is grateful.
“It has been a joy to work with so many intelligent, passionate and genuinely caring colleagues,” he said. “I look forward to even greater success for the Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools in the years to come.”
