Head of School News

Vince Tompkins recently announced in a letter to the community that the 2022-2023 school year would be his last as head of school at Saint Ann’s:

As we began to emerge from the experiences of the past twenty months—which undeniably included some of the most difficult circumstances I have faced in my career—I saw an opportunity to partner with the board of trustees in a thoughtful leadership transition, one that affords the school the time and space to recruit a visionary leader as my successor. The board and I re-engaged the task of long-term planning this fall, and I saw strategic decisions forming that have the potential to impact the school for a decade or more. It became clear to me that a decade or more of continuing in my present role was not how I envisioned my own future and was unlikely to be in the best interest of the school. And so, my decision about my own future was made in partnership with the board of trustees and in the best interest of Saint Ann’s.

As that process proceeds we will share updates and information on our website. Vince remains fully committed to Saint Ann’s through the end of the 2022-23 school year, focused on ensuring that the school will endure and thrive.
