Katherine Titus begins her tenure as Head of School, effective July 1, 2023. 

Following a national search, Katie was selected from an impressive pool of candidates and succeeds Ron Dalgliesh, Interim Head of School for the 2022–23 school year, and Matt Glendinning, who was Head from 2009–2022. 

Having served most recently as the Interim Head of School at the prestigious Lick-Wilmerding High School in San Francisco, Katie previously served as Head at Mercersburg Academy (PA), Associate Head for School Life at St. George’s (RI), and Director of College Counseling at Pingree School (MA). She has a Master’s degree from the Klingenstein Institute at Columbia University and a Bachelor’s from Middlebury College. 

Katie was appointed based on the enthusiastic recommendation of the school’s Search Committee and Faculty/Staff Advisory Council. As is custom at a Quaker school, the search process involved voices from throughout the community, and the process of discernment involved parents, alumni, faculty, and staff. 

“I have long admired Moses Brown, with its rich history and Quaker values, and I am thrilled to be returning to Rhode Island as the new head of school,” remarked Katie upon her appointment. “I look forward to renewing my connections to the Providence community and bolstering the school’s presence throughout the region.”
