Harrison Stuart brings both broad educational experience and a deep faith in the Episcopal Church to his position as Head of School. Prior to joining Episcopal School of Nashville, he served as Director of Admissions and Enrollment at Woodberry Forest School, Virginia. In addition to serving on the executive team, Harrison led the admissions process with a new marketing campaign and two successive years of record applications. Prior to that, he served as Director of Development, 6th grade math teacher, and member of the leadership team at the Episcopal School of Knoxville. A lifelong Episcopalian, Harrison was a Lay Eucharistic Minister and a member of the vestry, stewardship and finance committees at St. Thomas Episcopal in Orange, Virginia. He is now a member of Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Nashville.


Originally from Lexington, Kentucky, Harrison attended Woodberry Forest for high school and graduated from Hampden-Sydney College. Harrison’s wife, Katherine, is also a lifelong Episcopalian and a graduate of Episcopal High School, Alexandria, Virginia, and Sweet Briar College. Prior to moving to Nashville, she served as Director of the St. Thomas Community Preschool and a placement consultant for The Education Group, a national independent school placement agency. The Stuarts have four children, all of whom attend Episcopal School of Nashville.



“I felt compelled from the moment I met this tremendous group of people and heard their vision that this was our calling: to come to Nashville and help found this school. Episcopal School of Nashville is an important step for this community, the Episcopal Church, and our family.”
