Carolina Day School welcomes new Head of School

June 24, 2014

Carolina Day School is delighted to announce Kirk Duncan as their new Head of School, effective July 1, 2014. Kirk’s career has included leadership and teaching positions in independent schools for the past 34 years. He is a seasoned head of school with prior experience at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School in Atlanta and most recently, Washington Episcopal School in Bethesda, Maryland.

“When I learned of the Head of School opportunity at Carolina Day,” says Kirk, “It drew me in for a number of compelling reasons, in particular the opportunity for growth, the strength of the faculty and staff, and the community of families dedicated to the school’s success.”

In addition to his work over the years in a variety of schools across the country, Kirk has led highly successful capital and endowment campaigns and led strategic planning processes at several schools. Joining Kirk in his move to Asheville will be his wife, Sarah Wood, who is chaplain and religion teacher at Grace Church School in New York City. She and Kirk are looking forward to making their home together in Asheville.
