Interim Head of School Announcement

Interim Head of School Announcement

Dear High Point Community,
 
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am happy to announce the board has unanimously approved Dr. Timothy Burns as the Interim Head of High Point Academy, effective June 15, 2021. 
 
Dr. Burns brings over forty years of experience educating and leading schools.  He obtained his Ph. D. from Ohio State University and has had a wealth of experience serving as interim head with independent schools across the country. Most importantly, his background and educational philosophies are strongly aligned with High Point’s mission and values.
 
As many of you will remember, Dr. Burns returns to High Point Academy from his interim role as head of school at High Point seven years ago. We found him to be warm, thoughtful, and an experienced leader. He engaged with the students, faculty, and families seamlessly during his interim year as our head of school. We are very fortunate and excited to welcome Dr. Burns back to the High Point community.
 
We look forward to announcing opportunities to introduce or re-introduce Dr. Burns to the High Point community in the coming months.  If you would like to learn more about Dr. Burns’ philosophy of education, please follow this link:  Dr. Timothy Burns Philosophy of Education

Best,

Candace McMullin
