Calvert School Appoints New Headmaster

Andrew Holmgren, appointed Calvert’s seventh head master.

Calvert School last week announced the appointment of a new headmaster. Mr. Andrew Holmgren, currently Head of the Middle School at New York City’s Collegiate School, will take the helm as Calvert’s seventh headmaster beginning July 1, 2013.

Holmgren comes to Calvert with an abundance of professional experience in academia. Prior to his current position, he served as dean of Academic Affairs and director of Admission at Fairfield Country Day School in Fairfield, Connecticut. Holmgren also has taught Latin and coached several sports.

Holmgren’s affiliation with independent schools began with his own education. He graduated from the Roxbury Latin School in Boston, Massachusetts before earning a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Notre Dame and a Master of Arts from Fordham University; he focused on Medieval Studies in both undergraduate and graduate school.

Holmgren eagerly anticipates the move to Calvert, and Baltimore. “I am grateful and honored to be joining a school with such a strong tradition of academic excellence and a deep commitment to the character of the girls and boys it serves. My family and I are excited to begin our new life in Baltimore and as members of the Calvert community,” Holmgren stated in a press release distributed by Calvert.

As Calvert welcomes Holmgren, the school’s community bids farewell to Andrew Martire, Ed.D, a graduate of Calvert who has served as the school’s headmaster since 2004. In the upcoming school year, Martire will begin a new position as head of the Kinkaid School in Houston.

    Not a Calvert and/or Gilman graduate or from Baltimore? How refreshing for them. He sounds like an experienced, qualified educator and administrator. They could use someone focused more on students and academics, rather than fundraising and catering to select groups who can help further their career (and perks).
