Dear St. John's Community,
It is with great excitement that we welcome Jay Riven to St. John's Episcopal School tomorrow, October 18  and Friday, October 19 . J ay will be addressing the St. John's Community on Friday, from 8:15 - 9:15 a.m. in Clements Hall. All members of the community are welcome to attend this meeting. Jay will open the meeting by sharing details about his career experience, followed by the Q&A session.  

After each candidate visit, we encourage and welcome your feedback.  You can record your thoughts and feedback by visiting the online survey page here

We are conducting our search in the midst of a dynamic and highly competitive market. As we anticipated, some of our finalists are being sought by other excellent independent schools. To that end, the Search Committee was notified yesterday that finalist Gray Smith had accepted a Head of School position with a school in Florida. We wish Gray and his family the very best. At this time, the timing of the remaining finalist visits will remain as scheduled.

The process of selecting our next Head of School is exciting and extremely important to the future of St. John's. Thank you for your continued engagement and participation throughout our search. The commitment and involvement of our entire school community throughout this process strengthens our school's position.

Thank you in advance for your warm welcome to our finalists and your participation.


Chair, Head of School Search Committee
