Lynn Casto has served as Head of School at Maumee Valley Country Day School since July 2018.
“I love the student-centered focus of the school. That’s originally what drew me to MV -- the focus on the students. It’s a place where each child can define his or her passion, discover it, and explore it,” Casto said. “That learning by doing is very much ingrained in how I ran my own classroom as a teacher and what I cultivated in my kids.”
Prior to leading Maumee Valley, Casto served as Head of the Upper School at Sanford School Hockessin, Del., she taught and coached at the Brookwood School in Georgia, and at Charlotte Country Day School in North Carolina.
Casto attended the Columbus School for Girls, discovering a dual love for athletics and the arts. At Davidson College, she earned a bachelor’s degree in Art History while playing NCAA Division I lacrosse. She went on to earn two master's degrees in education, one in art education from The Ohio State University, and a second in private school leadership from the prestigious Teachers College at Columbia University.
