Change in Leadership at Holy Names Academy

Effective July 2023


Today, Holy Names Academy announced an upcoming change in leadership. Effective July 2023, Liz Swift will retire from her position as Head of School and Principal of Holy Names Academy, and Kim Dawson, the Academy’s current Vice Principal of Student Life, will become HNA’s next Head of School and Principal.

We invite you to hear more about this transition directly from Liz Swift, Kim Dawson, and Cindy Oh Lohman, HNA’s Board of Trustees President, in the video and letters posted below.

As the Academy prepares to welcome a new Head of School and Principal in July 2023, it continues its important mission of inspiring young women of diverse beliefs and backgrounds to excel in life with confidence and courage, to think critically, act with purpose, advocate for justice, serve with compassion, and lead with integrity.

Stay tuned for details on upcoming celebrations to honor Liz Swift’s decades of service to the Academy and to welcome Kim Dawson to her new position!
