NEW ALBANY, Ohio, November 16, 2018 – Following the recent resignation of current Head of School, Jamie Williamson, Marburn Academy will begin its search for new leadership.
Williamson who submitted his resignation, effective June 2019, on November 12th will take the headmaster position at The Windward School in New York.
