Announcing Our New Head of School

Jun 20, 2014
Ms. Tiffany Nichols, Head of School

After a thoughtful and collaborative Head search process, the SJPDS Board of Trustees, with the support of our Vestry, has called Ms. Tiffany Nichols as the new Head of St. John's Parish Day School. 

Ms. Nichols was chosen for her dedication to St. John's, her passion about making SJPDS a center of excellence, and for how well she embodies the characteristics included in the leadership typology set forth by the Board of Trustees and Head Search Advisory and Steering Committees - a leader who builds and facilitates teams; shepherds responsible finances; thinks strategically and entrepreneurially and; educates innovatively and thoughtfully.


Where are they now?
