Southern Teachers is working with Heathwood Hall Episcopal School to find its next Head of Middle School. The Middle School Head will be joining a school experiencing significant enrollment growth and a senior leadership team with exceptional synergy. Heathwood Hall is committed to experiential learning and is rightly proud of its distinctive programs. The Upper School’s Winterim and the Senior Exhibition Capstone Thesis project are over 30 years old, and a place-based learning initiative called Columbia Connections that utilizes the greater Midlands Area—and its people, institutions and businesses—to contextualize the curriculum is now in its fourth year.
The current Head of Middle School will be moving to the newly created Director of Enrollment Management position at the school. Her work over the past three years as Head of Middle School has been impactful. The Middle School has established a mindfulness program, improved its advisory program, expanded sports offerings, introduced community service requirements, and added an Executive Functioning Design Project. Heathwood Hall is a community in which daily activity aligns wholly with its values and its direction.
Heathwood Hall, founded in 1951, is located on the southwest corner of Columbia, South Carolina, on 122 acres of land adjacent to the Congaree River. With numerous residential neighborhoods within the city limits, Columbia is a wonderful city in which to raise a family. In addition to serving as the home to the State Capitol Building, the University of South Carolina, and the Army’s largest military training base (Fort Jackson), Columbia is experiencing significant economic growth. Heathwood Hall has and will continue to benefit from and contribute to Columbia’s success.

About Heathwood Hall Episcopal School
Heathwood Hall Episcopal School (HHES) is an independent, Episcopal day school founded in
1951 that serves 730+ children ages 2 through Grade 12. Just minutes away from the urban
grandeur of South Carolina’s capital city, Heathwood Hall is a serene, environmental oasis
nestled on 122 acres of wooded wetlands. The campus is bordered on the west by the
Congaree River, and on the north, east and south by lush farmlands.
HHES has long been known as Columbia’s premier independent school. Its tradition of academic excellence is coupled with a longstanding commitment to experiential learning that has led to the development of many distinctive programs.
Holding true to its Episcopal heritage, HHES celebrates and seeks to develop the whole child, and to develop tenacious, sophisticated thinkers who value service to others over self-interest. HHES further supports the development of the whole child through a rich array of extracurricular offerings that create ample opportunities for students to find and nurture their passions beyond the classroom.
HHES believes that children learn best when they are truly known and supported by their teachers. The school’s abiding commitment to bui...lding strong relationships between students and teachers allows the opportunity for each child to be met where they are in their educational and developmental journey, as opposed to taking a one-size-fits-all approach.
While HHES’s outcomes are second-to-none—its students compete nationally and achieve at the highest levels—each student’s Heathwood experience is unique, reflective of his or her interests and abilities, challenges and talents, goals and ethos. HHES graduates don’t just master the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college and beyond; they know themselves, and know how to advocate for themselves, in ways that set them apart from most of their peers. They leave Heathwood prepared not only to take on our dynamic world, but to transform it.
While the school community includes members of many faith traditions, Heathwood is an Episcopal School where all students and faculty gather, by school division, for worship and prayer each Wednesday in the on-campus Chapel of the Epiphany. The school is affiliated with the Episcopal diocese and benefits from a supportive Episcopal community in Columbia. It is a school that engenders strong loyalty and strong connections, and promotes an authentic spirit of inclusivity, acceptance, and care for each individual.
Today, HHES seeks an experienced development professional who appreciates the culture of this exemplary place, shares it values, and will cultivate relationships and gifts to ensure the betterment of the school.
