Head of School Welcome

Welcome

My name is Matt Green and I have the privilege of serving as Falmouth Academy's Head of School. The son of a school head myself, I was literally raised on independent school campuses and deeply believe in their unique power to unleash academic potential and develop strong character. I have spent the past 28 years serving as an English and occasional math teacher, an athletic coach, a dorm parent and advisor, an academic dean, and most recently, a division head at the middle and high school levels of three very different independent schools. I am honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to build on Falmouth Academy's tradition of excellence and lead this terrific school into the future. 
 
Come visit us and I think you will find that Falmouth Academy's mission, history, and culture will resonate with you as it has with me. You will be inspired by our long-standing belief in the power of close teacher-student relationships, our noble goal of graduating students who care for their environment and community, and our long-standing commitment to the written and spoken word. You will come to admire our faculty, each of whom is a master in his or her field and all of whom measure success not only by the places their students go, but by the distance each has traveled. 
 
Middle and high school are critical times in the development of our children. That natural curiosity and love of learning that typifies early childhood, the flame that has been lit in elementary school doesn't easily weather the slings and arrows of adolescence. At Falmouth Academy, however, your child will be inspired not only by the masterful, passionate teachers he or she will study under but more importantly, the enthusiastic, dedicated peers who will learn by his or her side. Here you'll find a community that combines small school values with big school opportunities—a school where kids not only fit in, they stand out.

  • Head of School Blog: Gimme a Break!

    Matt Green
    “Gimme a break, gimme a break, break me off a piece of that…” So goes the jingle so iconic that I bet you instinctively finished the tune with the name of that certain chocolate-covered wafer candy. Well, thanks to the intentional design of our temporary academic schedule, which allocates 15-30 minute outdoor breaks between every one-hour academic class, we at Falmouth Academy are doing just that...

    Good morning everyone.  I trust you enjoyed your day off yesterday.  It is of course well-timed, about five weeks into the school year; the shiny newness of the year has subsided, the work is, perhaps, getting real, mornings are a little darker.  A three-day weekend was just what the doctor ordered.   I wonder, however, how many of us thought deeply about why we had it?
