From N.Y. Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/15/nyregion/brearley-names-jane-foley-fried-as-head-of-school.html) by Jenny Anderson:

The Brearley School, an all-girls private school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, named a new head of school on Wednesday, capping a six-month search that involved 100 candidates. The announcement was in a letter to Brearley community families.

Jane Foley Fried, the dean of admission and assistant head for enrollment, research and planning at Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., will be Brearley’s 15th head of school. Her appointment comes at a time when private school admissions are increasingly cutthroat and costs are soaring.

“She brings a wealth of experience at an extraordinary institution,” said Alan K. Jones, president of the Brearley board of trustees. “As we did our reference-checking and our research, we found time and again she has been transformative in students’ lives and in helping faculty and administrators at Andover.”

Stephanie J. Hull, the last head of school, resigned abruptly last summer. Priscilla Winn Barlow, a former Brearley head, has been serving as interim head and will remain in place through the end of the current school year.
