Dan Alig Announced as Eighth Head of School
On January 7, 2021, the School announced that the Board has chosen Daniel Alig, former St. John’s Upper School Dean of Students and English Department Chair, to be the eighth Head of School in the summer of 2021. Dan comes to St. John’s from his current position as Head of the Upper School at The Lovett School in Atlanta, a position he has held since 2013.
Dan spent 13 years as a leading and beloved member of the St. John’s faculty and administration, serving as an English teacher, coach, advisor, college counselor, Admissions associate, and ultimately Upper School Dean of Students and English Department Chair. During his time at St. John’s, Dan’s leadership as Upper School Dean and Chair of the English Department, and the relationships and connections he built with students and faculty, were invaluable. Throughout the interview process, Dan’s continued love of St. John’s and the St. John’s community was clear. We are so pleased to welcome him back home to St. John’s.
Please join us in welcoming Dan, his wife, Jenine, and their son, Harrison, back home to St. John’s. As we move forward into the spring, we look forward to opportunities for Dan to further connect and introduce himself to the entire community. More information, including a letter from Dan to the St. John's community, can be found on the St. John’s Head of School Search Page.
