New High School Program Director
The Oak Meadow community is pleased to welcome Brian Morgan as High School Program Director. Brian's experience is a perfect fit for Oak Meadow's commitment to providing a world class education. He brings with him expertise in international education and is eager to explore new mission-appropriate courses, and further build faculty expertise in the distance-learning world.
Brian received his B.A. in Modern Languages from Cambridge University. He also studied at Moscow State University and at the Centre Universitaire d'Avignon. He began his teaching career at Phillips Exeter Academy as an instructor of French, Russian and German. While at Exeter, he coached track and field and directed the Exeter Summer School. Afterward, he became Director of The Putney School in Putney, Vermont for twelve years, and Head of The White Mountain School in Bethlehem, New Hampshire for four years. Brian is a long-time Trustee of the Verde Valley School in Sedona, Arizona where he oversaw the school's adoption of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. He is also a Trustee of the progressive K-8 Riley School in Glen Cove, Maine.
Brian has served on the NEASC Commission on Independent Schools as well as numerous accreditation committees, both in New England and overseas. Brian enjoys traveling, especially to visit with his daughter, who is also a teacher, and her family in India. Both his daughter and son-in-law have undertaken their master's degrees via distance learning, and Brian is intrigued by the potential role of distance learning in the future of international secondary education.
" I am thrilled to have been invited to join the Oak Meadow team! Many great universities, both in the United States and abroad, are now offering educational opportunities through distance learning, and secondary schools cannot be far behind. Oak Meadow is setting the pace in the re-definition of American - and international - schooling, and is giving new meaning to the philosophy of education as a liberating enterprise."
We invite you to meet Brian, our faculty, and staff at our Fall Open House on Saturday, October 6. For more information, visit our website, or call 802-251-7250
