St. Paul’s School for Girls, the private college prep institution in Brooklandville with a sister (brother?) boys’ school, has named a new top administrator.
Ereni Malfa, who most recently served as head of the Upper School at the all-girls Roland Park Country School, will take the reins. A St. Paul’s School for Girls alumna, Malfa was picked by a search committee for the job. She’ll start on July 1, 2019.
According to a letter from the school’s board, Malfa worked at Roland Park Country School for 24 years, and is credited with strengthening the school’s curriculum, introducing its STEM Institute and a certificate in foreign languages, coordinating with the nearby Bryn Mawr and Gilman schools and boosting Roland Park Country’s visibility. She taught science courses for her first 17 years there before being promoted to head of the Upper School in 2011.
She joins as the St. Paul’s Schools—which comprise the co-ed Lower School and the separate all-boys and all-girls Upper Schools—are being brought together under the umbrella of a single board of trustees. She’ll be filling a vacancy left by outgoing head of school Penny Evins, who’s been hired away to head up the Collegiate School in Richmond.
The St. Paul’s campus sits on 95 acres off of I-695 and Falls Road, and is affiliated with the Old St. Paul’s Episcopal Church downtown.
