Anne E. Swayze Named Interim Head of The Greenwood School

Ed Gale
The Greenwood School Board of Trustees is very pleased to announce that Anne E. Swayze, M.Ed., currently our Assistant Head of School, has been promoted to Interim Head of School. She succeeds Caryl Frankenberger, M. Ed.

Anne has a long history of leadership in educational settings and has demonstrated her commitment to the Greenwood mission as the premier college preparatory independent boarding and day school for students confronting learning, attention, and executive functioning challenges. 
Prior to joining Greenwood, Anne successfully served as Assistant Head of School at both North Country School and Proctor Academy. She has a breadth of experience as dean of students, teacher, athletic director, advisor, and dorm parent at various schools. 
In the Greenwood tradition Anne is wedded to experiential learning in the natural world. She is a mom of two teenagers herself and has a deep understanding of boarding schools and of Greenwood. 
“The life of a boarding school has a heartbeat. It is living, it is changing, and it must adapt to meet the ever-evolving times. The challenge is to identify which long-term ideas honor the school’s legacy and also provide continued growth.”
The Greenwood School Board of Trustees appreciates the many contributions Caryl has made to the school during her tenure. Caryl joined the Greenwood community in 2016 with the goal of leading the school through full implementation of its high school program and laying the foundation for Greenwood to become a co-education institution in 2020. She has created a strong and solid cornerstone for future growth and an exciting vision for the future. Now we are excited to have an experienced, “in-house” leader like Anne ready and able to continue the school’s momentum and progress. 
Please join us in welcoming Anne to her new role within our community.
