Head of School Search

Billy Peebles, Lovett's longest-serving headmaster, announced in March 2017 that he will retire on June 30, 2018.

A committee of members of the Board of Trustees has been convened to steward a search for Lovett's next head of school. The committee will work closely with consultants from Carney Sandoe & Associates (CS&A), the largest nationally recognized educational search firm. Devereaux McClatchey, President of CS&A, will be leading the firm’s search team. 

The committee's goal is for the search process to be inclusive, and we want to offer our entire community multiple opportunities to share hopes and thoughts about the future of Lovett. 

If you would like to make a recommendation or share your thoughts directly and confidentially with the search committee, please write to searchcommittee@lovett.org.
