Dear MCS Community:

The MCS Board announces with pleasure the appointment of Mr. Luis Hayes as the new President of Missoula Catholic Schools. Mr. Hayes has 20 years of experience as a coach, teacher, vice principal, and principal in the Dioceses of Orange and Los Angeles. We strongly believe Mr. Hayes possesses the vision, experience, and enthusiasm for Catholic education to lead MCS through this time of growth and opportunity. A product of Catholic education, Mr. Hayes has an MA in Catholic School Administration from Loyola Marymount University and an MEd in Educational Best Practices from National University. Please follow this link for his full bio.




Thank you to the many stakeholders who took part in the process of discerning the next leader of Missoula Catholic Schools. Your participation and feedback were very valuable to the MCS Board as it considered this decision. 

Please join us in welcoming Mr. Hayes for the 2021-22 school year as we continue in our mission to provide the opportunity for an outstanding Catholic education to Missoula area families.

 May you all experience the new life of Easter!


In Christ’s Peace,
