Girls explore their unique voices and discover the skills, confidence and courage to share them with the world at Foxcroft, an all-girls boarding and day school that prepares young women in grades 9-12 for success in college and life. Outstanding academics include Advanced Placement courses and an innovative STEM program. The equestrian program is nationally recognized.

Q: How has your experience as an alumna influenced your work with students?

A: Stephanie Young ‘00, Dean of Students: Being an alumna gives me insights into what’s important to the girls at this stage of their lives. It’s not just about remembering what it was like to be their age. I can join them in looking toward the future, while knowing which traditions and events will shape their Foxcroft experience.

Q: What are you most looking forward to in your new role at Foxcroft?

A: Whittney Preston, Dean of Inclusive Excellence: I’m looking forward to getting to know all members of the faculty and staff, amplifying their voices, and highlighting the amazing things I know they’re doing. Aligning the curriculum and viewing it through the lens of diversity, equity and inclusion is my mission. I’m elated to have the opportunity to continue to make this a place where all students can not only explore their unique voices, but see and hear those voices represented.

Q: Why do you do what you do?

A: Courtney Ulmer, Assistant Head of School: In the ninth grade, I had an amazing history teacher who made me grow as a learner, thinker and writer. She made me see my potential, and that’s what I want to give to my students. As an administrator, I still connect with students daily. At the heart of these interactions is giving students the tools to discover their potential and be their own advocate. I want them to learn how to have a difficult conversation, how to take on a more challenging class, how to weigh priorities.
