The selection of a new Head of School is one of the most important responsibilities of the Board of Trustees, and we are committed to finding an outstanding leader who will guide our community in its pursuit of educating minds, enriching hearts, and expanding horizons.

On June 3, the Board voted to name Lori Frank as Interim Head of School for the 2021-2022 School year. Lori, who is deeply rooted at St. Anne’s with more than 34 years of service, will provide stability and continuity of leadership. 

The Head of School search process will be open and inclusive, and we are committed to providing regular communications to the St. Anne’s community.
