I  SJA

St. James Academy is the type of school that feels like an extended family to its students, faculty, and parents. Its smaller size fosters such a great environment for everyone involved to learn and grow together. The experience extends far beyond the classroom, and it is what makes SJA special.

St. James Academy Interim Head of School Announcement

Dear Parents, Students, Alumni, Faculty, Staff and Friends of the Academy:

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am pleased to formally announce to you that Ms. Maureen Walsh, the former Headmistress of The Bryn Mawr School, has accepted an appointment to serve as the Academy’s Interim Head for the 2017-2018 academic year.  By way of background, Ms. Walsh was referred to us through AIMS. As reported to you previously, the Ad Hoc Interim Head Search Committee devoted extensive time throughout June and the first part of July to the process of the Interim Head search.

You should know that, in addition to various interviews with our committee, Ms. Walsh met with the Academy’s Administrative Team via FaceTime. After having concluded the various interviews, based on the survey responses from our parents and faculty and based on Ms. Walsh’s references, it was determined that Maureen was by far the best candidate to  serve as our Interim Head. Maureen brings to the Academy not only a strong professional background but she will also foster a sense of stability, as the Academy embarks on selection of a permanent head.

We cannot begin to express to you how excited we are to have Ms. Walsh join us, and we genuinely look forward to you, our school community, meeting her and working with her over the upcoming year.  More information will be communicated to you over the weeks to come.

Please provide Maureen with a warm welcome, and we look forward to working with her.

To our entire Community, thank you for your patience and support throughout this process.

Board of Trustees:
By: /s/ Rob Glushakow, President
