Sophia Academy’s beloved Head of School Gigi DiBello has decided to step down in June of 2018. While it is never easy to have a dynamic leader leave, we are grateful for Gigi’s dedication, vision and plain old elbow grease in leading Sophia for the last decade.
Gigi has guided Sophia through a tremendous period of growth and change. From developing a top-notch faculty, who brought high standards and rigor to our classrooms, to working with architects and construction teams to build our first permanent home, Gigi has worn many hats during her tenure. And with each hat, the Sophia community has grown stronger.
Sophia board members, Suzanne Fogarty, Head of the Lincoln School and Joy Fox, who led Governor Raimondo’s transition team will co-chair our search committee. This group will run a thorough and open process to find a new head of school to lead us into the future. They will engage many of you to get your thoughts and feedback on the characteristics our new leader should possess. Their work will begin immediately and in earnest.
