The Board of Trustees has unanimously approved the appointment of Kathleen Carroll Giles to serve as the Fourteenth Rector of St. Paul’s School, starting July 1, 2019. Kathy brings long experience and appreciation for the merits of boarding school life to the role.
Kathy currently serves as head of school at the Middlesex School in Concord, Massachusetts, a position she has held since 2003. From 1990 to 2003 she worked at the Groton School in a variety of roles, including dean of academic affairs, college advisor, English teacher, and coach.

“St. Paul’s recognizes that each young person deserves acknowledgement as an individual of unique capacity and personal promise, and works in partnership with young people and their families to develop the potential in its totality – moral and ethical as well as intellectual, social, and emotional – for the good of society and our world. I look forward to being a part of the wonderful St. Paul’s community and its on-going, perpetual effort to create and sustain a healthy and stimulating environment in which superb teaching, learning, and growing can thrive.”
