LHP Presidential Search

Presidential Search Committee Update: November 30, 2021

As our President search moves into its final stages, we anticipate a very busy and exciting period ahead as three outstanding finalist candidates and their spouses visit campus over the course of the next three weeks. Each candidate visit will span two full days and will include opportunities to interact with a wide range of stakeholders, including members of the Board and administrative team as well as representatives from the faculty, staff, parent, student, and alumni bodies. We look forward to sharing Lake Highland’s characteristic hospitality with the candidates.

We remain grateful for the tremendous time and thought the members of the Search Committee and Search Advisory Committee are dedicating to this process, and we are grateful for the participation of many community members in the upcoming finalist visits. We anticipate sharing another search update early in the new year.

Identifying, recruiting, hiring, and supporting a mission-aligned School President are vital components of Lake Highland Preparatory School’s Board of Trustees’ work. During the 2021-22 academic year, the Board is leading a nationwide search for the next President of LHP. This leadership transition is an important milestone and a collaborative process between the Board, the Search Committee, the LHP community, and our expert consultants. Now and always, we remain committed to our mission and values as we embark on the search for our school's next leader. 

Updates and information regarding the search process will be posted to this web page.
