Other Information
Max Delgado began his tenure as Upper School Principal in 2018, after serving for four years as SPA's Upper School Dean of Students. Delgado, who joined SPA in the fall of 2014, originally considered a career in family therapy but an offer to serve as assistant dean at a college preparatory school in California pulled him into secondary education. "There are so many pivot points in adolescence where kids are both guarded and vulnerable as they’re making big decisions about life," Delgado says. "During these years, kids are becoming who they want to be, how they want to be, and I enjoy being at ground zero for that." Delgado earned a B.A. in English from Fordham University and an M.F.A. from California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Before coming to Minnesota, he worked as a Care Coordinator and Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Counselor at an adolescent treatment center in Oakland, California. He then transitioned into education where he served as an Associate Dean of Students and Associate Student Life Director at a college preparatory school in Oakland. In 2011, he joined The Blake School in Minneapolis as a grade-level dean, an English teacher, and Director of the LearningWorks at Blake program.
