Southern Teachers is assisting Fuqua School in the search for its next Head of School. Founded in 1993 and located on 60 acres in the heart of Virginia, Fuqua School promotes academic success, healthy social and emotional development, critical and creative thinking, leadership and integrity, technology literacy, and civic participation among all its students.
Fuqua School’s academic program is designed to respond to the needs of each student and its size allows teachers to develop individual strengths. A nurturing and stimulating Lower School environment leads into a Middle School where instructional teams meet daily to monitor both learning and students’ social and emotional well-being. Upper School students enjoy an array of course options, including AP course offerings. Graduates of Fuqua are well prepared, matriculating to outstanding colleges in Virginia and beyond. The thirty-three graduates of the Class of 2019 were offered $6.6M in scholarships.
The current leadership of the school has ushered Fuqua through a period of transition and necessary facility and programmatic improvement. The school is currently undergoing the VAIS 10-year re-accreditation process and expects successful completion by May 2020.
The next Head of School will benefit from an institution that is characterized by its tight-knit, familial atmosphere. He or she will focus on enrollment and marketing, enhancing fundraising efforts for additional capital improvements, retaining exceptional faculty, and improving the physical infrastructure. The school’s recently expanded board and dedicated faculty and staff are excited to have a passionate, collaborative, and capable leader help write Fuqua School’s next chapter.
