Head of School Search

Dear St. Matthew's Community,

The Board of Trustees has appointed a search committee to manage the process of recruiting for, and ultimately identifying, our next Head of School. The Search Committee has engaged Tom Hudnut and Debbie Reed from the consulting firm
RG175 to lead recruitment efforts. Once our new Head is hired, Mr. Ralph Wales, current Interim Head of School, will work closely with this person to ensure a seamless and smooth transition to the 2021-2022 school year. 

To keep all members of our community updated on the progress of the search, this page will be periodically updated to share news and information.


Nicole Magaddino and Lija McBride 
Co-Chairs, Head of School Search Committee
