Head of School Search
UPDATE FROM SEarch COMMITTEE | APRIL
Dear SCH Community,
Spring is finally here and, with it, the excitement of new beginnings. March was a busy time for the Head of School Search Committee. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey for our search. The many responses allowed us to gather important data about what is important to our community in the next head of school. In addition, the Finney Search Group had a dozen Zoom meetings with over 200 stakeholders in the SCH community. The responses from the survey, coupled with the feedback from the meetings with Finney, have revealed several overlapping themes that will guide us in our search process.
Recruiting and retaining outstanding and diverse faculty, and enhancing academic excellence should be top priorities for the next head of school.
Advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts at SCH and providing a safe, nurturing educational environment for everyone in our community is an essential element for SCH moving forward.
Raising money for facilities that support the athletic and extra-curricular passions of our students is a priority in our community.
- Continuing to build upon our outstanding Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership and our robotics and arts programs.
Selecting a strong, inspiring, and engaging leader who is committed to our unique educational model that features both single-sex and coeducational learning.
The applications are in and have revealed a diverse and robust group of candidates. Every member of the applicant pool has excelled in their current and previous positions and are excited by the opportunity to lead SCH.
The search committee has conducted first-round interviews with all of the candidates. We now move on to the second round of interviews with the goal of honing the list to no more than three finalists. In early May, the finalists will come to campus for a series of in-person tours and meetings with students, employees, and key community stakeholders.
As we move into the final stages of this process, please be assured that the varied voices in our community have been heard and will continue to play an important role in the selection process.
We remain, as always, deeply grateful for your support, enthusiasm, and the strength of this community.
