Head of School Search

Bridgton Academy has launched a national search to find its next Head of School after Marty Mooney announced he would be departing after the current academic year.

The Board of Trustees is committed to conducting a transparent, inclusive search to find the best individual to lead the Academy over the coming decade and has convened a committee to lead the search for that person. The Search Committee and Board are committed to engaging the broader Academy community throughout the search process. The committee will soon meet with faculty, staff, and students to hear their perspectives on what qualities the next Head of School should possess.

Search Committee:

  • Paul Carberry, Search Committee Chair, Board Secretary, Trustee
  • Susan Yule P’11, Search Committee Vice Chair, Trustee
  • Scott Baker ’81, Trustee
  • Mark Lufkin ’96, Trustee
  • Doug Lyons ’83, P’13, P’19; Trustee
  • Erin Plummer, Trustee
Search Committee Ex Officio Members:
  • Vic DiGravio, Board President
  • Aaron Daly ’04, Board Vice President
  • Tom Hall ’85, Board Treasurer

Faculty and staff will be represented on the committee by an individual who will be identified soon.

This page will be updated regularly. In the meantime, you are encouraged to share any suggestions or thoughts you may have about the search process by emailing HOSsearch@bridgtonacademy.org.
