Faus named headmaster of St. Paul’s School
David C. Faus, headmaster of Cape Cod’s Falmouth Academy and a nationally recognized leader in independent education with more than 25 years of experience, has been selected as the 33rd headmaster of St. Paul’s School.
Faus succeeds Thomas J. Reid who has served as St. Paul’s headmaster since 2002. The School has enjoyed remarkable stability in its leadership; when Faus’s appointment becomes effective July 1, 2013, he will become just the sixth individual to serve as headmaster since 1932.
Prior to leading Falmouth Academy, Mr. Faus served for more than a decade as Assistant Head of School and Director of the Upper School at St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School, a large K-12 Episcopal day school in Alexandria, VA.
Faus holds a B.A. in history and sociology from Kenyon College, and an M.S. Ed. from the University of Pennsylvania. He also completed graduate work in the M.A.L.S. program at Wesleyan University and in 2007 was a Visiting Fellow at Columbia University’s Klingenstein Center. Faus and his wife, Holly, have two children, Libby and John.
