Mr. Dean J. Fusto
President and Head of Brandon Hall School

My Brandon Hall story began in the summer of 2017 when I began living and working in this amazing community. The stunning campus, and its natural setting, rivaled and surpassed any school setting in which I had worked in my two decades in boarding and day schools across the country and world. A boarding school, in particular, must be a place that a head of school can truly feel at home.  

My wife, Minuet, my daughter, Angelina, and my Father-in-Law all moved into the River House and settled into this global community on the Chattahoochee. The tenets of “leadership, scholarship, and service” that are embedded in our school’s mission all aligned perfectly with the aspects of education that most inspire me. As I reflect now on my third year, I continue to celebrate Brandon Hall and our talented faculty, staff, and students. As much as I appreciate how far we have come as a nationally ranked school, even greater joy emanates from the vision we collectively share for the future and the students we serve.
