Robert T. Scott, the president of St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute, will retire at the end of the 2017-18 school year, the high school announced Thursday.
Scott, who became president in 2004, started his career at St. Joe's when he joined the faculty in 1971. He began teaching religion, became vice president for student affairs in 1981 and was named the school's principal in 2001, according to the school.
"During my final year, there is great work to be done, and I have never been so optimistic about the future of St. Joe’s," Scott said in a written statement. "After all my years here, I have clearly learned there is nothing we can’t accomplish working with our alumni, parents, and friends of St. Joe’s – those who remain passionate, like me, in our mission to serve young people."
In 2008, St. Joe's named its new athletic complex after Scott.
