Casertano, who is currently assistant head of school for advancement and strategy at St. Albans School in Washington, D.C., will take over as the head of the all-boys private school on July 1.

He will succeed John Nagl, who has been the head of the Main Line school for the past eight years.

Casertano is the tenth head of school in Haverford’s 137-year history.

The school selected Casertano after a national search conducted by a committee chaired by Bart Smith and search firm Carney Sandoe & Associates. The new head was selected from 140 prospective candidates.

The search committee found Casertano’s “experience, leadership, and commitment to boys’ education to be inspiring and believe he is the perfect candidate to lead Haverford forward.”

In his previous position, Casertano taught United States History and Cities and Civilizations and served as an advisor to 11th and 12th graders. He has also been recognized with the school’s Hall-Hoffman Award and has received the University of Chicago’s Excellence in Teaching Award two times.
