April 11, 2017, Camden, New Jersey – Catapult Learning, Inc. announced the hiring of the Reverend Ronald Nuzzi, Ph.D., as Executive Director of Equitable Access and Excellence. Nuzzi most recently served as a Senior Director in the University of Notre Dame’s Alliance for Catholic Education. In his new role, Nuzzi will lead a national effort to ensure equitable services for all students attending Catholic schools. He will also work with the Catapult Learning professional development team to develop and deliver specialized programs for Catholic school leaders across the country.
“Fr. Ron Nuzzi has built a career dedicated to high quality Catholic education, as well as access to equitable services for all students,” said Steve Quattrociocchi, President of Catapult Learning’s Education Solutions Group. “His depth of knowledge and experience will further strengthen Catapult Learning’s instruction and professional development. Working together will also enable us to expand the services and support we provide to non-public school students and communities. We are excited to have Fr. Nuzzi join our executive team.”
Ordained in 1984, Nuzzi has served as a parish priest, teacher, school administrator, university professor, and retreat leader. Through nationally-held workshops, Nuzzi has provided guidance and education to leaders of Catholic schools in 49 states, and his work in the private, faith-based sector has given him a unique perspective on the moral, ethical, and religious dimensions of education. Nuzzi has also conducted studies of seminary education for bishops and consulted regularly for strategic planning, personnel, and governance issues.
As Executive Director of Equitable Access and Excellence, Nuzzi will continue this path toward improving the education of children in non-public schools.
