Head of School Message


Students learn and grow together as they explore a challenging curriculum taught by exceptional teachers in an environment that encourages collaboration and creative thinking.  We help students enhance their academic experience with participation in the arts and athletics, learning more about themselves and others in the process.  The Academy at Ocean Reef students emerge prepared intellectually and socially to lead lives marked by integrity, kindness, respect, and fulfillment.

I am delighted to now call The Academy at Ocean Reef my professional home.  Though my tenure as head of school is relatively new, I’ve had several opportunities over the last few months to connect with many of the families, an exceptional group of faculty members, and a committed and engaged parent community.  It’s with much anticipation and joy that I join this wonderful community and look forward to my tenure here.

 Thank you to The Academy community for such a warm welcome.  And thank you to Graham Brown for his stewardship of this wonderful school.  I wish him well on his retirement.
