Head of School

Chris Kolovos is the Head of School at Boston University Academy. Prior to BUA, Chris served for seven years as the Associate Head of School at Greens Farms Academy in Connecticut, where he oversaw the school’s academic program: creating a new schedule, service-learning program, and faculty evaluation system; leading the adoption of new courses focused on STEM, sustainability, global studies, and social justice; directing major institutional efforts to strengthen diversity, equity, and inclusion; and spearheading a hiring campaign that doubled the number of faculty of color during his tenure. He began his teaching career at Belmont Hill School, where he served for nine years as a history teacher, department chair, and Director of Global Education.

A son of Greek immigrants, Mr. Kolovos grew up in the Boston suburbs. He attended Roxbury Latin School and then Harvard College as a first-generation college student.
