Head of School Search

The Board of Trustees of Mill Springs Academy announced that our Head of School, Debbie Orr, stepped down from her position on November 17, 2023. The Board of Trustees has assembled a Search Committee that has already begun the process of identifying our next Head of School.  In searching for a new Head of School, the Board will be guided by the founding principle of the School’s founder, Tweetie Moore, that “If a student can’t learn the way we teach . . . we should teach the way a student can learn.”  Mill Springs combines a strong academic program differentiated for each individual learner with a unique social/emotional learning program embodied in the communities and levels system, and we will seek a Head of School who can nurture our core values and continue the School’s vital role in preparing our students for success. 

As the search for a new Head of School will take months, MSA's Transition Team has appointed Cindy Szwec as our Interim Head of School. If any member of the community would like to reach out to the Head of School Search Committee with questions, comments, or thoughts, please feel free to send an email to HeadSearch@millsprings.org
