Dear St. George's School Community:
As we settle into 2021, it is with great pleasure that I update you on the Head of School transition plan.  As you know, we are delighted with the results of the Head Search Committee’s work in 2020.  Mr. David Young will succeed Dr. Tom Matthews whose well-earned retirement will commence in the summer of 2021.

We continue to be blessed with Dr. Matthews’ strong and empathetic leadership in these challenging times; our community truly owes him a debt of gratitude for his constancy, care, and steadfast commitment to St. George’s School. 

Simultaneously, Dr. Matthews and Mr. Young have both demonstrated an outstanding ability to collaborate and prepare for an effective transition of the Head of School.  Despite the fact that Mr. Young continues to lead his own school through a pandemic, he finds the time for regular meetings with Dr. Matthews, the Board, and members of the Senior Leadership Team. This work will certainly pave the way for a smooth transition this summer.

As the year progresses, we continue to explore ways for the full St. George’s Community to meet Mr. Young.  Despite the limitations on travel, we are finding creative and meaningful ways to integrate Mr. Young into the rich fabric of the St. George’s community.  We are confident that, as you come to know him, you will agree he is the right man for the times.
