Holy Spirit Preparatory School has a new head of school.

Holy Spirit announced March 13 that Kyle Pietrantonio, former associate head of school and lower school principal, assumed the position of head of school on March 1.

Petrantonio had taught Latin and history and worked as junior high principal, Holy Spirit said.

He replaces former school president Gareth Genner, who left Feb. 28, the school said in a press release.

“We are excited for the future of the school and the new leadership under Kyle Pietrantonio,” board chair Joann Jones said in the release. “The school is exceptionally grateful to Gareth Genner for his significant contributions during his tenure, and we appreciate his availability over the next several months to provide any necessary consultation to our new head of school and the board.”
