Richard P. Hall, Chair of the Board
Dick Hall has served ASSIST as a member of the Board of Directors since 1983 and as Chair of the Board since 2005. A lifetime of experience in education gives him unmatched experience and insight that have proven crucial during these years of ASSIST’s growth.
Dick’s passion for fostering leadership and opportunity among today’s Scholars has led to his service as a trustee on multiple boards: the National Association of Independent Schools, the International Student House, and the Madeira School and St. Albans School in Washington, DC.
After graduating from St. George’s School and Trinity College and receiving his Master’s degree from Middlebury College in 1968, Dick began his adventures in the education field. He taught at the Berkshire School and Phillips Exeter Academy, then served as the head of the upper school at Seven Hills School before moving on for the next 28 years to serve as the headmaster of the North Shore Country Day School, director of the International School of Brussels, and head of school of the Washington International School, from which he retired in 2007.
