Talking about Jeff and Ben’s appointments, Chris Stacey, CEO of CATS Global Schools, owner of CATS Academy Boston, comments: 

“I am delighted to welcome Jeff to the CATS Global Schools family. From our first conversation, it was evident that he has an ambitious, caring, student-centred philosophy, which I have no doubt will be well-received by staff, students, parents, and partners. 

“I am confident that Jeff will make sure CATS Academy Boston goes from strength to strength as a leading US high School, recognised both domestically and internationally. 

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Ben for his contribution to the school, which recently included the successful launch of two academies - CSVPA Boston Arts Academy and American Hockey Academy – with both programs full in the first intake. I’m delighted that he is staying with us as Headmaster Emeritus.” 

A handover from Ben to Jeff is taking place to ensure a smooth transition of leadership. Jeff joins CATS Academy Boston on June 1 and can be contacted from then at
