Inspiring Excellence and Character in a Nurturing Environment!

Dear Albemarle School Community,

The Board of Albemarle School is pleased to announce the selection of Tracie Simpson as Albemarle School's official Headmaster. Mrs. Simpson has excellently served Albemarle School in several capacities for nearly three decades. She has been a dedicated classroom teacher of grades one through ten, Instructional Specialist, and Assistant Headmaster over this time. She has served on the Enrollment, Academic Affairs, SIT, and Leadership committees as well as every accreditation team for Albemarle School. She holds two Bachelors in Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and has extensive experience outside of school running her own business.

We are also excited to announce that Andrea Morris will remain as our full time Assistant Headmaster and School Counselor. Mrs. Morris has been with Albemarle School since 2015. She holds a Master of Education from Old Dominion University, is a licensed School Counselor, and a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor. She has nearly twenty years of experience working in education and human services, and has many years working with youth in our communities.

Since the transition of leadership in August, Mrs. Simpson and Mrs. Morris have done an excellent job of maintaining the high standards that we all have come to expect from Albemarle School. Many improvements have been made and we are excited to see things continue to move forward with our vision and goals!

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we would like to thank the members of the faculty, staff, students, and families of the Albemarle School community for your support and flexibility during this time. We greatly appreciate your dedication and commitment to the integrity of Albemarle School.

Please join us in welcoming Mrs. Simpson and Mrs. Morris to permanently lead our school community!
