Catherine J. Hall Appointed Seventh Head of School

On September 23, 2016, the Noble and Greenough School Board of Trustees announced the appointment of Dr. Catherine J. Hall as Nobles’ seventh head of school. The nearly yearlong international search culminated with unanimous recommendation of the search committee and unanimous vote of the board to appoint Hall, whose leadership will begin July 1, 2017.

Hall will succeed Robert P. Henderson, Jr. ’76, who announced in November 2015 that he would conclude his headship in June 2017. Upon retirement, Henderson will have served 17 years with distinction and presided over the graduation of nearly 2,000 alumni. The coming year will feature a number of occasions to celebrate Henderson’s extraordinary service to the school and express the community’s gratitude for his leadership.

Letter from Elizabeth M. Reilly ’87
President of the Board of Trustees

 September 23, 2016

To the Nobles Community,

This morning in assembly I had the great honor of announcing that the Board of Trustees has appointed Dr. Catherine J. Hall as Nobles’ seventh head of school. Cathy was in assembly, where she received a warm welcome and expressed her excitement about joining the Nobles community.

Cathy brings a range of experiences to the role, as has long defined Nobles’ leaders. Over the course of her career in education, Cathy has been an upper school English teacher, a middle school math teacher, and a varsity soccer coach.  She was the academic dean and director of technology at The Episcopal Academy before assuming her current role as assistant head of school. Both the search committee and the trustees were inspired by her intellect, perspicacity, humor, work ethic, and kindness. Cathy’s track record of innovating while securing traditions and sense of community holds great promise for Nobles as we begin our next 150 years.
