A Big Welcome to our New Head of School, Mya Sullivan
It is with great pleasure that I announce to you that Mya Sullivan will be the next Head of School of Welsh Hills School.
A native Ohioan, Mya is eager to bring her talents to Welsh Hills.
Mya has extensive experience at independent schools.
She began her career as a mathematics teacher at Trinity High School at Garfield Heights, Ohio and, then, taught at the Laurel School at Shaker Heights, Ohio.
She moved into school administration, serving as Director of Equity and Inclusion and the Chair of Learning Engagement at the Laurel School.
She next became the Assistant Head of the Middle School at Rabun Gap-Nacooche School in Georgia.
Mya now comes to Welsh Hills from Marin Academy in California, where she was the Dean of Equity and Inclusion from 2018 to 2021.
In these various positions, Mya worked in curriculum development, admissions, marketing, strategic planning, risk management, and budgeting, among other items. While she is not certified in the Montessori Method, she has some experience with it and is committed to continuing its use at
Welsh Hills School, as well as training additional staff in this philosophy.
Mya quickly emerged as the preferred candidate of the search committee, as well as for the board of trustees,
and I am confident that Welsh Hills School will be in good hands.
Mike Mangus, Welsh Hills School Board of Trustees President
Celebrating our 41st year, Welsh Hills School is the only independent school in Licking County. We educate children from infancy through grade 12. Through our hands-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) curriculum, students experience education in an environment that encourages creativity and nurtures a child’s natural love of learning.
Spanish, music, visual arts, robotics, drama, coding, organic gardening, and an award-winning, global education program are additional components of our school that expand and enrich our academic curriculum.
An infant program, and part-time and full-time toddler and preschool programs are available for families with children who are ready to join our school community.
