  • Interim Head of School Announcement


    Dear Shore Community, 

    On behalf of the Board of Trustees, it is my pleasure to announce the selection of Craig N. Sellers as Shore Country Day School’s Interim Head of School for the 2023-2024 school year. After a comprehensive, national search process, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously to affirm the recommendation of the Search Committee for Craig’s appointment. While Craig will officially assume the role in early July, he will begin working with the Board and senior leadership in the coming weeks in preparation for the transition. 

    Craig was selected from a robust pool of candidates who expressed interest in the interim headship. A Cape Cod native and veteran educator with deep leadership experience, Craig brings tremendous expertise in navigating the myriad of challenges facing independent schools today. Craig’s firmly held belief that Shore is uniquely positioned to catalyze self-discovery, build empathy, and nurture belonging for its students, was both affirming and compelling to the trustees, administrators, and community members with whom he met during his visit to campus on May 2. During his time with us, the Search Committee was impressed by his grasp of our mission and inspired by Craig’s assertion that joy is a “magic ingredient” in schools, “the campus catalyst, the secret sauce, the ineffable quality that explains why schools thrive or flounder.” It was clear that he is a head who understands the power of listening to, and learning from, the communities he leads. These qualities combined with his proven track record as a problem-solver, a mentor, and a strategic thinker made him the clear choice to be Shore’s next leader.
