David Faus Named to National Headmasters' Association
Posted 02/21/2019 09:00AM

The Country Day School Headmasters' Association recently elected St. Paul's Headmaster David Faus as one of its newest members.

Founded in 1912, the association's active membership is limited to 100 members from day schools around the country. The association brings together school leaders to collaborate on important issues impacting education.

"I'm humbled to be invited to join a group of innovative and distinguished leaders in education," said Faus.

Mr. Faus has been the Headmaster at St. Paul's for six years, during which the school has focused on the development of a K-12 curriculum, ensuring that the academic experience is connected and sequential. He also worked to enhance partnerships locally and globally, affording students a wide variety of educational opportunities around the world.

During his tenure, Mr. Faus has remained committed to fostering an inclusive community at St. Paul's. With the creation of the position Director for Inclusive Community, Mr. Faus has advocated for a focus on professional development topics and programming for students and families around diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Since 2015, Mr. Faus has been an integral part of the vision, fundraising, and implementation of numerous campus construction and renovation projects under the direction of the campus master plan. In 2017, St. Paul's built a 3,600-square-foot Nature Pavilion adjacent to the newly renovated Ropes Challenge course, in honor of faculty member and alumnus Skip Darrell '60 and his wife Janice. The pavilion provides an outdoor learning space where the community can interact with nature, teach outdoor skills, explore problem solving, enhance teamwork, develop leadership skills, understand natural elements, and promote spirituality. In 2018, the school stadium was renovated to better meet the needs of student-athletes and spectators, with updated grandstand, press box, and storage and team facilities. The stadium and turf field are dedicated to two legendary St. Paul's teacher-coaches: the George L. Mitchell '44 Stadium and the Martin D. "Mitch" Tullai Field. In early 2019, the school announced plans to build a new Upper School building that will provide students and teachers with a modern facility to optimizes and inspire learning. The building is designed to foster the supportive relationships and unique learning opportunities that are at the heart of the St. Paul's experience.

Prior to joining St. Paul's, Mr. Faus served as headmaster of Falmouth Academy on Cape Cod for eight years. Before leading Falmouth Academy, he served for more than a decade as Assistant Head of School and Director of the Upper School at St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School, a large K-12 Episcopal day school in Alexandria, VA.

Mr. Faus began his independent School career at the Landon School in Bethesda, then joined the Hun School in Princeton, his alma mater, where he served as Assistant to the Headmaster and Dean of Students, history teacher, dorm parent, and varsity coach. He next served as Director Upper School at the Hackley School in Tarrytown, NY, before moving to St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School.

He holds a B.A. in history and sociology from Kenyon College and an M.S. Ed. from the University of Pennsylvania. He also completed graduate work in the M.A.L.S. program at Wesleyan University and in 2007 was a Visiting Fellow at Columbia University's Klingenstein Center.
