Morgan Scoville, our Head of School, brings 13 years of independent school leadership and an M.Ed. in Independent School Leadership from Vanderbilt University to our Leadership Team. His career has been shaped by his commitment to developing exceptional learning environments that empower lifelong student success through leadership and emotional intelligence development.
“I’m very drawn to the mission of The Fay School. Emotional intelligence coupled with leadership skills will position our students and alumni to make significant contributions to the world around them and for the rest of their lives.
That type of development is second to none. What’s more, middle schools, high schools, and universities are beginning to look for those types of traits in their applicants. I can confidently say that The Fay School is ahead of the curve when it comes to human capital development and I am so excited to play a role in that.”
Prior to leading The Fay School, Morgan served St. Francis Episcopal School as Head of Admissions and Enrollment Management and as a member of the Senior Administration. He drove the creation of St. Francis’ new upper school division, including the recruitment of founding administrative and academic leadership, progressive cross-disciplinary curriculum design, student life programming, and strategic financial modeling. Prior to St. Francis, Morgan earned his M.Ed. in Independent School Leadership from Vanderbilt University and served in impactful administrative roles at the Asheville School in North Carolina and St. Andrew’s School in Delaware, both prestigious boarding schools. Morgan’s experience, curiosity, humility, and dedication to students each play a role in his leadership style that help guide Fay students and families.
Today, when not supporting students on the Fay campus, Morgan is an avid runner who has logged thousands of miles preparing for multiple marathon races each year—including 8 years as a competitor in the Boston Marathon. He hopes that his experience as an athlete may serve as inspiration to those around him:
“Stay true to yourself. Set goals. Find your personal frontiers and then expand them. Do these things while allowing others on your journey to help you, as you will enjoy the journey that much more if it is shared."
