Head of School

Thank you for your interest in Worcester Academy.

Many people ask me what I most like about Worcester Academy. My answer is this: My community inspires me.

Worcester Academy is a school that embraces its identity and tradition by teaching students to Achieve the Honorable in all that they do. Even as we evolve in the 21st century by implementing innovative classroom and operational practices, we remain true to our roots and our mission – to create lifelong learners who engage passionately with the world around them. Our faculty is instrumental in creating a rigorous academic program of great dimension with invaluable mentoring and support. Our teachers provide broad perspective on the world, integrate technology, and push every student to be their very best selves.

I marvel at the many ways in which this learning extends outside the classroom as well. As one student said recently, “Our city setting shows us first-hand some of America’s greatest challenges and helps us grow as leaders and problem solvers."

Hilltoppers translate their learning into action as well. Our students are trained to lead, and with faculty support, they connect their interests to ambitious service projects that benefit our neighborhood, our community, and even the globe.

I’m inspired by what I see here on campus every day, and I look ahead with great enthusiasm to being inspired by you.

See you on campus!
