Kathleen C. Giles is the 14th Rector, and first woman, to lead St. Paul’s School. She does so in collaboration with a team of senior administrators and more than 500 dedicated faculty and staff members. They are supported by a diverse Board of Trustees comprised of highly skilled SPS alumni and parent volunteers. 

Together, they work to honor and fulfill the mission of the School, “to educate students to build purposeful lives in service to the greater good,” with a commitment to excellence in character and scholarship. In 2022, Rector Giles and the Board of Trustees enacted a strategic plan for the School that will guide its evolution in the years to come.
