Head of School

Dear FVS Community,

The FVS Board of Trustees is proud to announce that Megan Harlan has been appointed as the Ninth Head of School.   Megan was appointed after a comprehensive search by the Search Committee, which was led by Greg Osborne ’82.  Megan will begin her tenure on July 1, 2022.

Megan comes to FVS with an extensive background in education.  She has worked in public schools, day schools, and boarding schools.  Most recently, Megan was the Assistant Head of School at The Groton School in Groton, MA.  Megan will be moving to campus with her husband, Geoff, who has also had a long career in education, most recently at Lawrence Academy.

Megan is excited to hit the ground running and is already planning around her transition to FVS.  In her words, she believes that, “small boarding schools offer unique opportunities.  At their best, they have the ability to teach equal parts skill, leadership, and character and can help students find their voice and tell their stories.”  During the interview process, Megan repeatedly discussed the partnership that is necessary between students, faculty, and staff to move a student’s education forward.  This was one of the thoughts that moved the search committee towards its decision in recommending Megan to our board.

We look forward to working with Megan to continue moving FVS forward.  We also wish to thank our entire community for your help and input during the search process.  We thank you all, in advance, for welcoming Megan to The Fountain Valley School of Colorado.
