After an eight-month search, the MICDS Board of Trustees has appointed Jay Rainey as MICDS’ next head of school.
Rainey comes to MICDS from Randolph School, a K-12 independent school, where he has served as head of school since 2014. Prior to Randolph School, Rainey spent 12 years at Norfolk Academy, where he served as a math and English teacher, coach and college counselor before being promoted to director of studies and then assistant head of academic affairs.
Rainey has eight years of entrepreneurial and business experience. He earned a master’s degree from the College of William & Mary and an undergraduate degree from Princeton University.
Current MICDS Head of School Lisa Lyle announced in January that she will leave her position at the end of the 2018-19 school year when her contract expires. Rainey begins his position July 1, 2019.
