Head of School Update

Dear Hill Top Community,

We are excited to announce that with the appointment of Kevin M.R. Mayne as incoming Head of School, a Transition Committee has been formed and met this week to plan for a seamless transition of leadership at Hill Top Prep throughout the next 12 months. At the forefront of this work is the development of opportunities for our community to get to know Mr. Mayne, as well as to acknowledge the great work and dedication of Tom Needham.


As we begin to formulate our plans, we will communicate additional details, including event dates and opportunities to meet and hear from Mr. Mayne, who is looking forward to learning more about our community and getting to know all of you. The Committee will work to ensure that this important transition is as smooth as possible and encourage input from and collaboration with the entire Hill Top Prep community -including students, parents/guardians, faculty, staff, alumni and alumni parents. 

In the coming weeks, we will continue to share information about the transition, including a schedule of transition events this spring specifically designed for each core group in our community.

We will update you as we move forward and encourage you to stay tuned in. Learn

We are grateful to serve in this capacity, and we look forward to this exciting time ahead.
