Archbishop Mitty High School operates under the direction of the Department of Education of the Diocese of San Jose.  The Principal, Mr. Tim Brosnan, works closely with the Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese and with the support of the Bishop.   The Principal has the ultimate responsibility for the general administrative functions of the school, and he delegates many of the day-to-day responsibilities of the school to various of the school’s administrators.  In addition, the Principal maintains the relationship between the school and its publics; insures the ongoing Catholic identity of the school; supervises the Director of Campus Ministry; and facilitates the operations of the school’s Board of Regents.

The Board of Regents is comprised of members of the local community dedicated to the continuing success of Archbishop Mitty.  It meets quarterly and advises the Principal.  Through its committees, the Board assists in strategic planning and policy development.

Two associate principals oversee the day-to-day operations of the school.  Associate Principal Ms. Kate Caputo oversees the academic departments of Mathematics, Science, Physical Development, and World Languages, as well as the Counseling Department; directs the admissions programs of the school; establishes student placement processes and grade reporting functions; supervises the Director of Student Activities, the Registrar, the Director of Publications, and the Director of Forensics; directs the school’s public relations efforts; evaluates the program of instruction; and promotes curriculum development.  Associate Principal Mr. Keith Mathews oversees the academic departments of English, Religious Studies, Social Studies, Performing Arts, and Visual Arts; administers the teacher hiring, development, supervision, and evaluation processes; supervises the Athletic Director and the Director of Performing Arts; evaluates the program of instruction; and promotes curriculum development.
