Saint Dominic Academy will convert to a president/principal model of school administration starting in the upcoming academic year. Donald Fournier, principal for the past eight years, has been named the first president of the school; Joline Girouard, currently an assistant principal, will be the new principal of the upper school in Auburn (grades 7-12) and Donald Bilodeau, also an assistant principal, will become principal of the lower school in Lewiston (PK-grade 6).

The president will serve as the school’s chief mission, advancement and executive officer and will be a liaison between the school, the diocese and the community. Principals will report to the president and will be responsible for the day-to-day operations at each location. The new organization is designed to enhance planning, fundraising and financial viability and allow for better services to the school community.
