UPDATED: 1:10 p.m. Monday-
After a reported 25 years with the school, Christian Brothers College High School President Mike England resigned suddenly Sunday citing personal reasons, according to CBC Director of Communications Rob Staggenborg.
The school is located just off Highway 40 in Town and Country.
"The faculty was notifed on Sunday that he resigned for personal reasons," Staggenborg tells Patch. "As far as I know, no one really knew about it until the announcement was made."
Staggenborg said school staff cannot release much information on the resignation since it's a personnel issue, but tells Patch it was all very unexpected and parents were then notified by email Monday morning.

"A lot of people were taken by shock. It was a very sudden situation," Staggenborg said Monday. "I think there's a lot of people who are speculating, but the fact is that he sent out a note he was resigning."
No word yet on who will replace England, but Staggenborg said the school's Vice President of Institutional Advancement Michael Jordan is now serving as interim president
