SMH Proudly Announces New Head of School Selection

Saint Mary’s Hall is pleased to announce the appointment of Len Miller as our next head of school, beginning July 1, 2020.  This selection is the culmination of an intensive, extensive search process, which drew applicants of the highest caliber from the most prestigious schools across the country.  Mr. Miller’s appointment follows the overwhelming endorsement from all constituencies of our school community, the unanimous recommendation of the head of school search committee, and the unanimous approval of the board of trustees.

Mr. Miller is an educator, scholar, and leader who has served with distinction throughout his almost 25 years in independent schools. The son of two educators, Mr. Miller’s roots in education run deep beginning with his work at the Berkshires summer camp run by his family where he discovered his passion for teaching and mentoring young people. He attended public high school, then completed a post-graduate year at Choate Rosemary Hall. A scholar-athlete, he graduated from Williams College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies with a concentration in Art History. As a varsity basketball player, Mr. Miller received the Purple and Gold Award, which recognizes the player who “best exemplifies team spirit, leadership, and character.” He later earned his Master of Arts in American Studies from Columbia University. 

Mr. Miller will come to Saint Mary’s Hall from The Hill School in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, a coeducational independent boarding and day school founded in 1851 and serving approximately 530 students in grades 9-12 and post-graduates, where he has served as associate headmaster since 2014. As associate headmaster, Mr. Miller is responsible for leading a team of nine senior staff direct reports, overseeing the daily operation of the school’s academic, co-curricular and residential programs, creating and implementing innovative new programs, and providing leadership in the school’s capital campaign, which recently passed $100 million.

We eagerly anticipate the contributions Mr. Miller will make to the next chapter of Saint Mary’s Hall’s history.  We invite you to read the full community announcement, and learn more about Mr. Miller.
