Search committee selects Beverly Fowler to lead Salisbury Academy

Beverly Fowler has been appointed Salisbury Academy’s next head of school.
She will start July 1, a news release said.
After a lengthy search, the head of school search committee recommended Fowler’s candidacy, citing her character and reputation, commitment to the school’s curriculum and co-curricular programs, familiarity with the culture of Salisbury Academy, strong community ties, the news release said.
“As current academic administrator and Lower School director, Fowler has earned the respect of the administration and faculty,” board of trustees Chairman Robert Anderson said. “She is trusted by parents, students, and the entire board of trustees.”
Anderson added that the search committee actively sought someone who could provide strong leadership in growing enrollment, addressing facility needs, managing finances and contributing to the school’s marketing and development efforts, while continuing to focus on academic rigor and leading edge curriculum development. “Fowler’s proven track record has touched on all of these key areas,” he said.
Fowler has served in various capacities at Salisbury Academy for the past 13 years, first as a teacher and most recently as head of Lower School, director of admissions, and academic administrator. During her tenure, Salisbury Academy has experienced substantial growth with enrollment, the news release said. She has been involved with the development of curriculum and the accreditation process with the Southern Association of Independent Schools.
Fowler received a bachelor’s degree in communications from Asbury College and is presently working towards her master’s in educational leadership from High Point University. “I am honored and excited to serve as the next head of school at Salisbury Academy and work together with the board, staff and parents, building upon the school’s successful history as we look toward the future,” Fowler said. “Salisbury Academy’s culture partners with families to develop in students a love for learning, a curiosity for the world around them, a desire to serve their community and an opportunity to deepen their faith. I am humbled to have the opportunity to lead and have my family be a part of such a remarkable place.”
Fowler lives in Salisbury with her husband Chris Fowler and two sons, Will, a fifth-grade student at Salisbury Academy, and Luke, who will enter pre-kindergarten at Salisbury Academy in the fall.
