Southern Teachers is assisting Ware Academy in the search for its next Head of School. Established in 1949, Ware Academy is a pre-kindergarten through grade eight, coeducational day school located in historic Gloucester just minutes from the Chesapeake Bay. While emphasis is clearly on academic rigor, the school values the development of character. Students learn kindness, mutual support, respect, and leadership. All constituents speak of and value the close-knit fabric of the Ware community.
Ware Academy is committed to a low student/teacher ratio, with 22 faculty members dedicated to their students’ success. Varied teaching strategies meet individual needs, and accommodations are provided for learning differences when appropriate. The visual and performing arts program is commendable, not only in its scope, but also in its integration into all areas of the curriculum. The school’s athletic program provides an avenue for student growth and is a source of school spirit. The proof of the school’s success is in its alumni, who go on to become leaders in their schools and communities after receiving their foundation at Ware.
Ware is a community where people have genuine care and concern for each other. The next Head of School will maintain and respect the strengths of Ware Academy and recognize the importance of the school’s mission and philosophy. He or she will work with the team to create and articulate a vision for the future of the school that includes clear goals in regards to academics, personnel, and financial sustainability.
The next Head of School will lead with integrity and be positive, empathetic, connected. The best candidates for this position will possess strong interpersonal skills with students, parents, teachers, and board. They will be charismatic, supportive, and fully-invested in the success of the school and its community. They will lead by example and collaborate with teachers to design the Ware Academy of the future.
