Cristo Rey Jesuit High School has announced the appointment of Adam Noto as athletic director. Noto replaces Tony Cole at the Fells Point private school.

“We want to continue to develop student-athletes who are dedicated to their academics, passionate about their athletics, and committed to fitting the profile of a Jesuit high school graduate,” Noto said. “Athletics at Cristo Rey Jesuit are so much more than x’s and o’s and wins and losses. Our program is built on the core values of faithfulness, awareness, integrity, teamwork and hard work (FAITH). Those attributes will serve students long after their playing careers at Cristo Rey Jesuit.”

Noto previously was at Medaille College, in Buffalo, N.Y. where he served as an admissions counselor and junior varsity basketball coach. He also worked as sports information director at Hilbert College in Hamburg, N.Y.

A native of Buffalo, Noto holds a bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s degree in sport administration from Canisius College after prepping at Canisius High. Both institutions are sponsored by the Jesuits.

“Cristo Rey Jesuit is a great fit for me,” Noto said. “I believe strongly in the mission and values of the school. These very same values, which were a life-changing part of my experience at Canisius High School, have motivated and inspired me to work at Cristo Rey Jesuit.” 

“Adam Noto brings a tremendous energy and enthusiasm for the athletics program at Cristo Rey Jesuit. He also brings a deep understanding of our school’s unique mission: to prepare bright and promising Baltimore City students for success in college, work and life,” Rev. John W. Swope, SJ, president of Cristo Rey Jesuit said in a statement. “I know he will be an inspirational and effective leader for our student-athletes.”
