Head of School Search

Please join the board in congratulating JD Friley in his role as Head of School! He has been serving as the Assistant Head of School for the past year, and has been with The Leelanau School for 10 years, after serving as Director of the Pathfinder School and in many leadership roles at Interlochen Center for the Arts and Culver Academies. JD brings great knowledge and experience to his new position as Head of School.

Because JD plans to retire in the “not-too-distant future” the search will continue for his replacement, but he has agreed to stay as long as necessary to give us adequate time to do a deliberate and thorough search.

Have your say about our next Head of School. Please take this short survey to help our committee set priorities in characteristics and qualities we need in our next Head of School.

Thank you!
