Head of School
The team that provides administrative leadership for the school is made up of lifelong educators and those for whom education is a personal and professional priority. SPA's Head of School works closely with the school's academic and administrative leadership on all aspects of the SPA experience, from academics and student life to athletics, admission, financial aid, and fundraising. The Board of Trustees is the school's governing body and is comprised of SPA alumni/ae and current and former parents. The Board advises the Head of School on broad issues related to organizational management, facilities, and the school's finances.
