Biography

Cynthia Richter - Administration, Assistant Head of School - St. Paul Academy & Summit School

Assistant Head of School Cindy Richter oversees the K-12 academic program, working to ensure the continuity of content and development of skills as a student moves through the curriculum. Working with the Head of School, Principals, and Department Chairs, Richter examines each step of a student’s academic journey, making sure that each grade builds appropriately upon the previous one. Richter chairs two academic decision-making groups, the K-12 Academic Council and the Lower School Academic Committee, both of which serve as essential forums for thoughtful discussion of the academic program.

Richter also works closely with admissions, diversity initiatives, academic and technology integration, and summer programs. She oversees faculty professional development resources through the Lilly Faculty Development Fund, which supports opportunities for teachers to attend conferences, workshops, and graduate classes, and the Wark and Stringer Curriculum Development Grants, which support summer curriculum development.

Richter’s work at SPA is influenced by her love of learning. “I am inspired by great teachers I've had in my own education,” she says, “the first of them here at SPA when I was a student.” Her current position as Assistant Head of School grew out of her previous position as K-12 Academic Dean, which she held since 2001. Prior to that, Richter taught history and English in the Middle and Upper schools since 1996. She earned a B.A. in history from Swarthmore College, an M. Arch. from Princeton University, and a Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Minnesota.
