We are extremely excited to share the news that, following a unanimous recommendation from the Search Committee, the Board of Trustees has named Steve McManus as the next Head of School, starting in July 2022.
Last summer, the Board of Trustees appointed a 13-person Search Committee, including trustees, parents, current faculty, past staff, and alumni. In September, the Committee and our consultants from Isaacson, Miller conducted nearly 20 listening sessions to gather input about our community's aspirations for Burke and the professional experience and personal qualities most important to all of us in our next Head of School.
This past spring, the Board of Trustees announced Head of School Damian R. Jones' departure at the conclusion of the upcoming school year (June 30, 2022). Following his eight-year tenure at Burke, Damian and his family will be relocating to California, where he will lead the Center for Early Education.
