Trinity Valley School has named Ian L. Craig as the next Head of School beginning in July 2016.
The Board of Trustees of Trinity Valley School made the announcement on Thursday. Craig will succeed Don North, who is serving as Head of School for the 2015-2016 academic year.
For the past nine years, Craig has served as Head of Harding Academy, a co-ed, independent K-8 school in Nashville. While there, the school completed the most successful capital campaign in school history, he oversaw development and construction of the school’s first athletic complex, a new Middle School, and expansion of its performing arts facilities; the school increased enrollment to record levels; expanded summer and ancillary programs; and he helped develop a comprehensive master plan and strategic plan with the Board of Trustees.
Prior to his work at Harding, Craig served as Middle School Director at University School in Shaker Heights, OH; Middle School Director at Westtown School in Westtown, PA; and Assistant Head of Middle School at Greenhill School in Dallas. Earlier in his career, Ian had multiple teaching and coaching roles at Buckingham Browne & Nichols School in Cambridge, Mass.; Kildonan School in Amenia, NY; and Stuyvesant High School in New York City. Ian received his BA in International Relations from Syracuse University, and a Master of Arts in Secondary Social Studies Education from New York University.
Craig has been married to his wife Holly for 19 years. Holly is a successful entrepreneur.
