Carson Roy became The Potomac School’s director of admission and financial aid on July 1, 2016. He brings to Potomac extensive experience in all aspects of independent-school enrollment management and a warm, welcoming, and enthusiastic personality.

Mr. Roy notes, “I’m excited to be here! From my first visit to campus, I was impressed by Potomac’s vibrant and welcoming community and challenging, enriching academic program. I look forward to the opportunity to introduce prospective students and their families to this amazing school.”

For the past five years, Mr. Roy served as director of admission and financial aid at Pomfret School, a coeducational boarding and day school in Connecticut. His responsibilities there included planning and implementing strategic admission and financial aid programs; hiring and supervising professional staff; and traveling extensively to increase awareness of the school and meet prospective students. As a member of Pomfret’s senior administration, Mr. Roy chaired a number of key committees and worked directly with board members; in addition, he served as faculty advisor to six students each year and was the school’s assistant varsity golf coach.

Previously, Mr. Roy was director of middle and upper school admissions at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in New York City and, before that, assistant director of admission at The Williston Northampton School, a coeducational boarding and day school in Massachusetts.

Mr. Roy earned his Bachelor of Arts in history from Saint Lawrence University and his Master of Arts in Education Leadership from Columbia University Teachers College. He serves on the Admissions Leadership Council of SSATB-The Admissions Organization and the Advisory Council for the Erdmann Institute for Enrollment Leadership.

The Roy family – Carson and his wife Jillian, daughter Campbell, and son Grady – are delighted to be part of the Potomac School community.
