M.A. Theology/Social Justice, Loyola University Chicago

Mr. Scott McLarty was born in Santa Monica, California. He attended St. Mel Parish School in Woodland Hills for grades 1 through 8 and graduated from Loyola High School of Los Angeles. While at Loyola, Scott was heavily involved in theater, athletics, and campus ministry. It was his time there that sparked his lifelong love of learning, commitment to social justice, and interest in a career as an educator. 

Mr. McLarty attended Loyola University Chicago, earning both his B.A. and M.A. in the Windy City. He got his first job in education teaching English literature to incoming freshman during the summer between his Junior and Senior years of undergraduate studies. After teaching theology and religious studies full-time for almost 10 years, Mr. McLarty became the Director of the Office for Peace and Justice in the Archdiocese of Chicago and represented the Cardinal Archbishop on all matter relates to Catholic social teaching. He also taught as an adjunct professor at DePaul University and the University of St. Mary of the Lake.  

Mr. McLarty moved back to California and returned to education in 2012, first teaching religious studies at St. Ignatius College Prep in San Francisco and then becoming the Director of Admissions at Bellarmine College Prep in San Jose. Most recently, he was the Head of School at Mercy High School, San Francisco and worked as an education consultant. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the Hollywood School House in Hollywood, California and on the Alumni Board of Loyola High School of Los Angeles. 

Mr. McLarty could not be more excited to be joining the Providence community at Head of School. The mission of Providence High School and the charism of the Sisters of Providence resonate with his own personal mission and identity: promoting the common good, especially the well-being of the poor and vulnerable. He believes that education should be joyful, relevant, preparatory for work and life, and productive of social good. In his spare time, Scott enjoys spending time with his daughter (Harper 9), cooking, reading, travel, and spending time outdoors.
