Collegiate’s new Head of School begins today

Stephen D. Hickman begins his tenure as Collegiate School’s new Head of School today, arriving from Little Rock, Ark., where he served for six years as Head of Episcopal Collegiate School, a pre-K-12 college preparatory school.

"Collegiate’s demonstrated record of and commitment to preparing young people for our rapidly changing and challenging world are unparalleled,” Hickman said this week. “To be asked to help lead this outstanding school community is very exciting and humbling. I can’t wait to roll-up my sleeves and get to work."

Collegiate teacher wins statewide award

An economics class he took in college has resulted in long-term payoffs for Rob Wedge -- and for growing numbers of students at The Collegiate School as the well.

In 1996, as a history teacher at Winchester (Massachusetts) High School, Wedge was approached by the assistant principal, who was casting around for someone to take over his part-time teaching duties.

Noticing the economics class on Wedge's college transcript, and not wanting to turn over his economics class to someone who knew nothing about the subject, the administrator asked Wedge if he'd be willing to teach part-time while working on his master's degree at Boston University.

"Being a starving college student," recalls Wedge, "I happily took the job."
