Edward (Ed) P. Hardiman (born in Norwood, Massachusetts) is the 16th Headmaster of the St. John's Preparatory School in Danvers, Massachusetts.[1]


Hardiman initially served as a lay missionary in Duran, Ecuador, as a member of the Rostro de Cristo. In September 1993, Hardiman began his career in education at his alma mater Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, Massachusetts, where he served as a teacher and administrator, including as assistant principal for academics, dean of students, and director of campus ministry.

In July 2003, Hardiman became the principal and then in July 2011 the headmaster of St. John's Preparatory School in Danvers, Massachusetts. During his tenure at St. John's, he has led efforts to increase diversity among students and faculty, introduce a 1:1 student iPad program, add Chinese to the world languages curriculum, develop new computer science courses, and expand summer programs. He also expanded the scope of the school's campus ministry programs, including In Ryken's Footsteps, a program of local, national, and international student service and cultural immersion programs named for Theodore James Ryken, who founded the Xaverian Brothers in Bruges, Belgium in 1839.

In May 2013, Hardiman announced an ambitious strategic agenda through the Prep 20/20 initiative including the opening of a middle school,[2] constructing a new academic building,[3] and building a new wellness center.[4]

Hardiman is a member of the Board of Trustees at Cheverus High School in Portland, Maine and the Board of Directors of Rostro de Cristo.


Hardiman graduated from Xaverian Brothers High School in 1988 and then earned a bachelor's degree in politics at Fairfield University in 1992. He then received a master's degree in pastoral ministry and a doctorate degree in educational administration from Boston College. In 2007, Hardiman received an honorary doctor of laws degree from Fairfield University.
