The Calvert School, a private day school with a nationally recognized homeschooling curriculum, will welcome a new headmaster in July, the school announced Thursday.

Andrew Holmgren, currently the head of the Middle School at Collegiate School in New York City, will become the North Baltimore school's seventh headmaster.

He will replace Andrew Martire, who has been headmaster of the Calvert School since 2004. Martire had accepted the job of Head of School at the Kinkaid School in Houston.

A product of independent schools, Holmgren graduated from the Roxbury Latin School in Boston. He holds degrees from both University of Notre Dame and Fordham University, in medieval studies, according to a release from the school.

His administrative and education experience includes teaching Latin, coaching sports, and serving as the dean of academic affairs and director of admission at Fairfield Country Day School in Connecticut.

"I am grateful and honored to be joining a school with such a strong tradition of academic excellence and a deep commitment to the character of the girls and boys it serves," Holmgren said in a release.
