Walnut Hill School for the Arts recently announced that it will be conducting a comprehensive search for its next Head of School who will be hired for a July 2022 start. The Walnut Hill Board has appointed a Head of School Search Committee and that group has enlisted a consulting team from Resource Group 175 (RG175) to manage the search process.
Input from all members of our community will assist us in identifying the critical skills, experience and vision necessary to ensure the future growth and success of Walnut Hill. Our next leader will be charged with helping us realize our fundraising, strategic and School-wide goals. This is an opportunity to attract a Head of School who will continue to enhance and improve upon a Walnut Hill education while upholding our core values.
This page will be updated as the search progresses. Please check back regularly throughout the next few months.
