Dear Members of The St. Paul's Schools Community,
We are pleased to announce that as part of the unified governance structure of The St. Paul’s Schools, a national search has begun for the newly-created position of President of the Schools. The President will oversee strategic, operational, and administrative functions at each of the three Schools: the coeducational preschool and Lower School, and the single-gender St. Paul’s School for Girls and St. Paul’s School. Click here for an overview of the position.
While working with the existing Heads to ensure that each School retains its own historic identity, traditions, and gender-appropriate programs, the President will assume several important roles: visionary leader, programmatic integrator, administrative integrator, external ambassador, and quality controller.
A search committee has been formed, with Elise Butler, SPSG ’83 and Joe Sutton, SPS ’88 to serve as Co-Chairs. The committee has developed an initial position description and engaged Carney Sandoe and Associates to assist with the search. The goal is to name the new President during the next year and have him or her in place no later than July 1, 2019.
The search committee looks forward to engaging with the Schools’ constituents and providing opportunities for comments and feedback in the coming months. The search committee will provide periodic updates to our community as the process unfolds.
We are truly excited by the work that has already begun and by the opportunities that lie ahead.
