Announcing the Permanent Head of School

We are thrilled to announce that Racheal Adriko will be joining SF Day as the next permanent Head of School, beginning July 1, 2023.

The Search Committee partnered with the executive search firm RG175 to identify and interview a diverse group of experienced candidates. The finalists visited the school and met with our community to learn more about our aspirations and to answer questions about their approaches to education and leadership. The Search Committee also spoke with many faculty, administrators, board trustees, and parents from the finalists’ previous and current schools. Thank you to all who participated in this important process--the Search Committee is deeply grateful for your time, partnership, and care.
