CJ Announces Greg Mueller as Principal

After completing a thorough search process, Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School is pleased to announce Greg Mueller, who was named acting principal earlier this fall, has accepted the role of principal at CJ. 

“I am humbled and honored to accept the position of principal at Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School,” said Mueller. “The rich tradition and living charisms of the Marianists and Sisters inspire me to continue the mission of Catholic education at the corner of Franklin and Ludlow streets.”

“During his thirteen years at CJ, Greg has demonstrated a deep commitment to our mission, an appreciation for our unique Catholic character in the traditions of the Sisters and the Marianists, and a spirit of collaboration with teachers, students, parents, staff, and fellow administrators,” said Dan Meixner ‘84, president. “He is clearly ready for this leadership opportunity. Because of the strength of the education leadership team and the support of the teachers and staff for Greg, I have great confidence that he will be successful and can make wonderful contributions in this new role.”

Mueller, who earned his bachelor’s in education from the University of Dayton and master’s in education leadership from the University of Dayton, began his time at CJ serving as an English teacher. As leadership opportunities presented themselves, Mueller took on additional roles including coaching and later as assistant principal. When former principal John Marshall ‘86 announced he accepted the position of CJ’s director of development after the retirement of Jim Walworth, both Marshall and Mueller worked together for a seamless and successful transition.

“I’ve developed so many lasting friendships in the classroom, on the field, and within the walls of CJ,” Mueller said. “I truly believe the beautiful, diverse people of CJ - both alumni and current students and parents, volunteers, and benefactors - are what sets us apart and makes such a strong culture. I look forward to working with a talented, professional team of educators to lead our students and the CJ community into a future where Eagles will truly take flight!”

Mueller and his wife, Shannon, are parents of Phillip (7), Lillian (5), and Penelope (1). They are supporters of Catholic education who send their two oldest children to Holy Angels school. The Mueller family are active members of Holy Angels Parish.
