Maude Bond replaced Rose-Ellen Racanelli as an upper school dean, bringing ten years of experience from both a high school counseling and a college admissions perspective.
Previously, Bond was the associate director of college counseling at the United Nations International School in New York and worked as the Director of multicultural recruitment at Columbia University.
She studied African and African American Literature and Theater at Sarah Lawrence and earned her Masters of Fine Arts in creative writing at New School University.
Bond met with her current juniors and seniors and their parents in May, although she did not officially start as a dean.
“I’m excited to work with Ms. Bond as she seems like a qualified and kind dean,” Griffin Fenady ’17 said. “That being said, I enjoyed working with Mrs. Racanelli, and I’m sad she is leaving. I’m looking forward to getting to know Ms. Bond this year.”
