Dr. Renee Murley has been appointed as our new Head of School, effective August 1, 2022. Dr. Murley brings extensive classroom, administrative, and leadership experience to this role.

Already deeply involved on campus as both parent and Board member, Dr. Murley is well suited to continue campus momentum and to effectively further strategic campus initiatives.

"Over the past 70 years, Boyd Buchanan has positively impacted the lives of hundreds of families" Dr. Murley said. "When we moved to Chattanooga six years ago, we toured several schools, and Boyd Buchanan quickly became the best option for our family. The opportunity to achieve academic goals in a Christ-centered environment aligned with our family values. I am thankful and honored to continue that mission for other families in leading students at Boyd Buchanan to grow intellectually, spiritually, and socially in the love of Christ."

Most recently serving as the Director of the School of Education at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Dr. Murley earned her B.S. and M.S. degrees from Freed-Hardeman University and was later awarded a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Memphis.

Matt Mathis, Chairman of the Board, said “we believe her leadership style and collaborative spirit will enhance the campus experience for our faculty, staff, and students and promote the well-being of our campus community. We are honored to have her join us in this capacity as we work to further the vision and mission of our school.”

Bucs Pray - 40 Days of Prayer

While we don’t always understand how, God promises to show up and be present when God’s people commit to prayer. A group of people committed to prayer can change the world. Not because of the ability of the people, but because of the power of God. The Board has given us specific prompts to pray for each day, and every family, every student, every faculty member, every alumnus, and every friend is being asked to commit to praying as a community for the next 40 days.
