SEM's Head of School Search

A Message From the Search Committee Chair

The SEM Board has embarked on a search for the next Head of School who will begin leadership in July 2024.  We have engaged nationally recognized firm Storbeck Search to partner with us in this exciting process. The voices and perspectives of the SEM community will be integral throughout the search. Faculty, staff, parents, students, and alumnae are encouraged to share their input and feedback. We remain grateful for the strong leadership of Helen Marlette, our current Head of School, and appreciate the time we will have to celebrate her tenure with us prior to her retirement. We plan to complete the search process and announce SEM's new Head of School in Fall 2023. Please follow this webpage as a resource and for updates on the search process.

-Jennifer Daily Gress,  Trustee,  P '23 & '26
