From the Head of School
A hearty welcome to the Santa Fe Prep website—and, by extension—to the School itself! Now in my 14th year as head of school, with two of our daughters proud alumnae thriving in college, and with my wife, Story, serving as Director of College Counseling, I appreciate at a very deep level the many strengths and opportunities available at Santa Fe Prep. I am also keenly aware of the vibrancy that defines Prep and of our vital role in the Santa Fe community.
Whether you are a Prep graduate reconnecting with the School through the website, a parent or student looking for School forms and information, a prospective family considering enrolling your child at Prep, or a teacher interested in joining our faculty, we hope the website encourages you to engage with the School. I am confident you will find the interaction fruitful, and I appreciate your interest.
At the center of our Statement of Purpose is our commitment as a school to “active discourse.” The education at Santa Fe Prep is engaging, innovative, relevant, and in constant evolution. Our greatest strength is the quality and dedication of our faculty; they interact with students as individuals, honor alternative perspectives, and help students discover who they are and what they love.
