David Young began serving as the superintendent of Catholic schools for the Diocese of Burlington in June 2022.
Young began his teaching and administrative career in Fairfax before serving as the principal of the Georgia Elementary School for 10 years. He spent 17 years with the South Burlington School District. He started at South Burlington as the assistant superintendent and served as the superintendent for the last 11 years.
Young received a bachelor’s degree from Norwich University and served in the United States Army as an officer before returning to his alma mater for a master’s in education administration.
“I look forward to the opportunity to support the leaders in the Vermont Catholic schools,” said Young. “I believe that relationship development leads to trust, and with that formation, honest and reflective outcomes emerge.”
Young grew up in Burlington and currently lives in South Burlington with his wife, Linda. They have three children: Austin, Anna and Connor, and a son-in-law Colden. Three of the four are educators.
