Craig Anderson Appointed Interim Head of School
International School of Indiana is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has appointed Craig P. Anderson as Interim Head of School, effective July 1, 2018. Mr. Anderson’s appointment follows David Garner’s decision to retire this June from International School of Indiana as Head of School. A permanent successor will likely be announced in August and is expected to join the ISI community as the third Head of School in January 2019.
Anderson, a member of the Board since 2014, has most recently served as First Vice President and Search Committee Chair. As the Interim Head of School, he will lead the School’s administration through the remainder of 2018 and will remain accessible to the new Head to ensure an orderly transition. Accordingly, he has taken a leave of absence from the Board.
Anderson has extensive management experience, including senior leadership roles with Strada Education Network, JPMorgan Chase, USA Group\Sallie Mae, and Bank One Education Finance Corporation. He has led his own consulting company, Common Sense Student Loans. He most recently served as President of Student Connections, a Strada Education Network company. He received a bachelor’s degree and masters in higher education administration from the University of Florida. Anderson’s children, Daniel ’15 and Samuel ’17, are graduates of ISI.
During his brief tenure, Anderson will work directly with the School’s Senior Leadership team: Lower School Principal Trina Haygaru, Upper School Principal Timothy Veale, Vice President for Finance and Operations Jim Ewing, Vice President for Development and External Affairs Kristen Kaiser, and Admissions Directors Natalie Wolfe and Kate Lock. He will also work closely with the School’s 2018-2019 Board of Directors as they set general institutional policies, provide strategic planning, aid the school’s fund-raising, enrollment, and marketing initiatives, and continually assess the school’s effectiveness at fulfilling its mission.
As ISI enters its 25th anniversary year and prepares to welcome its third Head of School, the Board of Directors aims to ensure that the school continues to have the highest academic standards, opportunities for boundless exploration, creativity, and collaboration that prepares students for the world stage.
