Head of School Search

The Frederick Gunn School recently announced that the 2022-23 academic year will be Head of School Peter Becker’s final year at Gunn. The Frederick Gunn School Board of Trustees has appointed a Search Committee to identify our next Head of School. Our school has demonstrated what is possible when an institution strives for excellence across the entirety of its community. The pursuit of excellence will be at the center of our search for the next Head of School — along with identifying a candidate that aligns with the educational values put forth by Frederick Gunn 173 years ago. The best is yet to be for our school. We encourage you to visit this page often for updates on our search process.
