Dear Woodstock Academy Community,
Headmaster Richard Foye has informed the Board of Trustees of his intent to retire at the end of the 2008-2009 academic year.
Headmaster Foye has dedicated thirty-five years to the betterment of students. His belief in opportunities for young people has been a guiding principle in his tenure as a classroom teacher and, ultimately, as an administrator.
Woodstock Academy has benefited from the leadership of Headmaster Foye. The Bracken Memorial Library underwent an extensive renovation to become an outstanding center of academic life. We created a Strategic Plan that will carry us forward for the next five to seven years. The New England Association of Schools and Colleges accreditation process was completed in a timely and thoughtful manner. We examined our academic and athletic spaces to prepare for the future. Headmaster Foye has worked tirelessly to enhance “the Academy difference”.
While the Board will miss the leadership, enthusiasm, and integrity that Headmaster Foye brings to the position, we wish him all the best in this next phase of his life. We will be working with him to ensure a smooth transition for the future. I will keep you informed of this process over the coming months through newsletters and press releases.
Again, please join me in thanking Headmaster Foye for his commitment to the Academy and his dedication to students.
Sandra Fredrickson, President
Woodstock Academy Board of Trustees
