Head of School Search

Serve • Lead • Flourish

Welcome to the Information Center for our Head of School Search. Here you’ll find the latest updates, a timeline for the search process, and a list of people who can help with questions. 


As you know, Stu Work announced his retirement in October 2016.  We are extremely grateful for Stu’s many years of service and will miss his wonderful presence on campus. Thanks to Stu’s leadership, the school is in a position of strength and fiscal security, with a well-developed academic and extracurricular curriculum that prepares our students for a future where they can serve, lead and flourish.   We wish Stu the very best as he starts the next chapter of his journey. 


We’re also excited about our school’s next chapter.  The transition to a new Head of School will allow our community to reflect on where the school is today and where we can take it together.  The Search Committee is already hard at work, having engaged experienced strategic consultants to facilitate our nationwide search:  Bob Fricker and Peter Philip from Carney, Sandoe and Associates. 


Throughout this process, we will invite your input and active participation.  Please refer to this page often for announcements and updates, and do not hesitate to reach out to any of the Head Search Committee Members should you have questions or comments.


Thank you in advance for your interest and support.
