Head of School Search
After a decade of exemplary leadership, Dr. George Penick has announced his intention to retire from St. Andrew's Episcopal School at the end of the 2017-18 school year.
To initiate the search for a worthy successor to Dr. Penick, the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees talked to independent school leaders and interviewed a number of top search firms. The Trustees were consistently informed that St. Andrew’s enjoys an outstanding reputation across the country, and that we can expect a national search to generate interest from a strong pool of applicants.
To advise us, the Board has retained a highly-regarded firm that specializes in independent school searches, School Strategies and Solutions.
This page will be continually updated as the search progresses.
