Head of School Search

Edmund Burke School has now begun a national search for our 6th Head of School, who will join in July 2022. We invite the community to check this page for updates on our search. *Please scroll down to see the full search committee.

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.

"During my entire time at Burke as a parent, trustee, and now as Board President, Damian has been an inspiring leader. [His] vision for what this community could accomplish led to the successful Stand with Burke Campaign, creation of an innovative, school-wide social change curriculum, and a strong outlook for enrollment and financial sustainability heading into next year. Damian's deep and continuing commitment to our school is reflected in his thoughtful approach to his departure. By letting the Board of Trustees know his plans more than a year in advance, he has enabled us to make this transition as seamless as possible," writes Sharon Davis P'19.
