Morgan Scoville is our Interim Head of School, bringing 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.”
Before joining the Fay Family, Morgan served on the senior administration as the Head of Admissions and Enrollment Management at St. Francis Episcopal School in Houston. In conjunction with that role, he helped design best practice and progressive cross-disciplinary curriculum, student life programming, and strategic budgeting to successfully launch the school’s new Upper School. Prior to his leadership at St. Francis, Morgan worked in impactful administrative roles at the Asheville School in North Carolina and St. Andrew’s School in Delaware, both prestigious boarding schools.
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."
