Founded in 1848, Sacred Heart Greenwich is one of the 200

This past Spring, the Sacred Heart Greenwich community's overall
needs were identified through a lengthy and inclusive strategic
planning process that involved Trustees, faculty, parents, alumnae,
and administrators. Framed by the Goals & Criteria, the plan
revealed the need for a new relationship-driven and collaborative
model for school leadership to expand the breadth and depth of
expertise at the organization's highest level.
To this end, the Board of Trustees implemented a new dual
leadership structure for the School: President and Head of School.
Under this new leadership structure, senior executive functions are
aligned around two distinct school life facets: institutional
capacity (President) and instructional leadership (Head of School).
The President and Head of School have autonomous responsibilities
based on the scope of their respective roles. However, the Board of
Trustees anticipates that the success of this new model will rely
on the collaboration and cooperation of the President and Head of
School as co-leaders of Sacred Heart Greenwich.
Sacred Heart's new Head of School, Meg Frazier, arrived in July
2020. The Board of Trustees is now excited to focus on finding a
dynamic, qualified leader to serve as the inaugural President of
the Sacred Heart Greenwich.
