Our Head of School
As Asheville School’s ninth Head of School, I am excited to propel the school forward in coming years while keeping sight of our mission:
“To prepare students for college and for life and to provide an atmosphere in which all members of a diverse, engaged and purposefully small school community appreciate and strive for excellence – an atmosphere that nurtures character and fosters the development of the mind, body and spirit.”
As a member of the Class of 1984, I know what this mission looks like in action. Asheville School excels at preparing students academically, socially and emotionally for college and beyond.
The boarding school experience fosters independence and the college-preparatory program cultivates critical thinking and a true love of learning. What stands out at Asheville School, though, is our unparalleled community. Every student is known and loved. Students know they are supported, so they aren’t afraid to fail and try again. They gain confidence beyond their years and learn who they are, what motivates them and how to thrive.
I look forward to encouraging this community and guiding Asheville School as it continues to take its place as one of the nation’s premier boarding schools.
