Head of School Search

In December 2018, our previous Headmaster announced the 2018-2019 school year would be the end of his tenure at Ware Academy. The Board of Trustees appointed an Interim Head of School for the 2019-2020 school year in order to ensure a thorough and successful search for Ware's next Head of School.

 This page is used to keep our community up-to-date on our search for Ware's next Head of School. Led by a Head of School Search Committee and assisted by an Advisory Committee and search firm, Southern Teachers, Ware will conduct a nation-wide search in our efforts to bring the School new leadership.
