Courtney Millet named SCC principal for 2019-20

LAPLACE — Dr. Courtney Millet is returning to St. Charles Catholic High School as the new principal for the 2019-20 school year.

New Orleans Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond and Catholic Schools Superintendent Dr. RaeNell Houston made the announcement Friday morning.

Millet will officially assume the role of principal on July 1 with the retirement of longtime, dedicated principal Drew Cupit.

Millet graduated from St. Charles Catholic High School in 1984. Following her graduation, she attended and graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education.

She received a Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership, as well as a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of New Orleans.

Millet has strong connections to St. Charles Catholic. Besides having worked at the school previously, she and her husband, as well as her two sons, are graduates of the school.

“My Catholic faith is the lens that foundationally guides my thinking and practice,” Millet said. “I am excited to return to St. Charles Catholic as its principal and spiritual leader with a great sense of enthusiasm, commitment, faith, and purpose.”

In making this announcement, Aymond and Houston extended their gratitude to Cupit for his decades of service to St. Charles Catholic.

“He is an example of the person who sees Catholic education as a ministry, and the archbishop, superintendent, and St. Charles Catholic High School community are grateful for his service,” a release from SCC stated.
