Head of School Search

Ravenscroft believes that the inspirational talents of our educational leaders are essential to our mission. 

We have been blessed with a talented leader serving our school for more than 20 years. On May 1, 2023, Head of School Doreen C. Kelly announced that she is concluding her service as Head of School at the end of our 2023-24 school year.

Ravenscroft remains committed to the belief that the experience and talents of our educational leaders are essential, and it is the Ravenscroft Board of Trustees' responsibility to hire our 15th Head of School. Board Chair Amy Batten has announced the Board has retained recruiting agency RG175 and named the Search Committee in her communication on May 1, 2023

On Friday, Sept. 22, 2023 the Board of Trustees shared their unanimous decision to choose Derrick Willard to be the next Head of School at Ravenscroft beginning July 1, 2024.

Our Mission

The Ravenscroft community, guided by our legacy of excellence, nurtures individual potential and prepares students to thrive in a complex and interdependent world.

The Search Committee is committed to the best interest of the school, considering both short-term and long-term visioning for Ravenscroft, and possesses extreme optimism for the opportunities a new Head of School can bring.
