Meet Our Head of School

Welcome to Kinkaid!  We invite you to explore our website where you'll quickly discover that our school is grounded in academic excellence, robust visual and performing arts programs, successful athletic programs, and student leadership development.  Additionally, our students are provided experiential learning opportunities and access to resources that one simply can't find anywhere else.  Kinkaid is a school where balance is valued.  What makes The Kinkaid School distinctive and even unique is the strong sense of community.  A talented student body is taught and mentored by a premier faculty and staff who are national experts in their fields, all of whom share a passion for developing scholars, artists, athletes, and above all, good citizens.

And like our students, our school possesses a growth mindset.  We are driven to continuously strengthen our position as one of the premier pre-kindergarten through twelfth-grade schools in the country.

Thank you for your interest in Kinkaid. We look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you at 201 Kinkaid School Drive. Until then, thank you for taking a few moments to learn about our people and programs as well as the strong character of our school.

Sincerely yours,
Jonathan Eades
Head of School
