The Scholar-in-Residence Program at Malvern Prep launched during the 2023-24 academic year. The main goals of the program are as follows:
- Connect the Malvern Prep community with individuals who have achieved true excellence in a particular field by inviting them to serve as a scholar-in-residence for a full academic school year.
- To provide opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to learn with and from this individual through a variety of events throughout the school year including all-school assemblies, classroom visits, teacher professional development days, and microcourses.
Malvern Prep's first scholar-in-residence for the 2023-24 school year is Dr. William Carr (Malvern Prep alumnus class of 1968) a world-class pianist, who will be centralizing Creativity as the main theme for the program for this year. When working with groups of students, teachers, or other community members, his goal is to hone in on how important creativity is within the learning and problem-solving processes. He will also be showcasing his own creativity and excellence by performing for the Malvern Community throughout the year.
Dr. Carr will provide our community with learning exercises that only a true expert in the field could provide. We are very excited about what this program will bring to our community and how it will elevate the skills and character of our students, helping them to work towards true excellence in their own chosen paths.
