Dear members of the Falmouth Academy community,

On Monday, September 18, our final Head of School candidate Jeff Terwin will be on campus to meet with the Falmouth Academy community. Dr. Terwin has been Assistant Head of School/Head of Upper School at The Wellington School, a pre-K to 12 day school in Columbus, Ohio since 2012. Prior to that, Dr. Terwin was the Head of Upper School at Chase Collegiate School in Waterbury, Connecticut where he also served as Director of Environmental Sustainability and Co-Director of Academic Technology. In his early educational career, Dr. Terwin was Upper School Dean, Director of Teaching and Learning Initiatives and taught at North Shore Country Day School in Winnetka, Illinois. In addition, he was the Director of Sustainability, Academic Council Chair and coached varsity basketball and golf at the school.

Dr. Terwin received his B.S. in Zoology from Michigan State University and his Ph.D. in Marine, Estuarine and Environmental Science from the University of Maryland. He did a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Connecticut in Marine Coastal Research (Invasive Species).

We hope you will join us in Buxton Library on September 18 from 4:00 - 4:45 pm to meet Dr. Terwin. At that meeting you will be provided with a survey link to provide your impressions of the candidate. These surveys will go directly to our consultants who will tabulate them anonymously by constituent group.

Should you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact the Search Committee via email at hoss@falmouthacademy.org. Thank you in advance for your participation and your valuable input.
