Augusta Preparatory Day School is getting a new leader.

Stephen Schools has been named to replace Head of Upper School Jan Hicks after her retirement at the end of the school year, according to a Wednesday announcement.

Schools has more than 22 years experience in education and is currently the Head of Upper School at The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland in Baltimore.

“Mr. Schools is a consummate educational professional,” according to Head of School Becky Gilmore in the release. “His independent school background, his varied experiences in excellent school programs, and his understanding of the importance of fostering 21st century skills while honoring our tradition of academic excellence will serve Augusta prep’s forward-thinking strategic vision well.”

Hicks is retiring after eight years as the school’s Head of Upper School.

“Jan leaves Augusta Prep’s Upper School in excellent shape for Mr. Schools,” according to Gilmore in the release. “Her leadership has set the standard high and her commitment to a smooth transition has already been proven. Nevertheless, she will be missed by all of us.”
