Our Head of School

Head-Royce School is, simply put, an incredible place! Starting from its roots in 1887, it continues to grow and flourish through each iteration. A visionary thinker for her day, Anna Head established the Anna Head School for Girls with one goal in mind: to create a “solid and comprehensive” school for young women that – in addition to academic achievement – encouraged the study of liberal arts, participation in sports and outdoor activities, and preparation for college. Today, we carry Anna Head’s “whole child” philosophy forward as we promote our vital mission of scholarship, diversity, and citizenship.


As we look to the future, we are guided by a comprehensive strategic plan, Bridge to 2022, that aligns our work across five goals; teaching and learning, equity and inclusion, civic engagement, balance and well-being, and financial stewardship. These goals and initiatives are purposely aligned with our mission and intentionally centered on our students. Our world-class faculty are passionate educators committed to supporting our students on their individual educational journeys. We are fortunate to have a beautiful and flexible campus environment providing small classes and collaborative spaces where our students flourish.

Please come and see us! We welcome visitors to campus and believe it is the best way to get to know our school community.
