Head of School
Mr. Logan Bowlds is the tenth Head of School at Stratford Academy and previously held the title of Head of Middle School at Stratford from 2017-2019.
Logan came to Stratford after serving four years as the Associate Head of Middle School at Episcopal Day School in Pensacola, FL. During his time at Episcopal Day School, Logan was able to wear many hats and get his hands into every area of school management and leadership. After his time at EDS, Logan enjoyed the move to an older, more established school with strong traditions and the wonderful alumni base that Stratford has.
Logan began teaching right out of college at The St. Matthew School in Franklin, TN, where he was hired to teach social studies and history to students in the middle school. While there, Logan was able to dabble in many areas of administration serving on the schools technology team, curriculum advisory team, and chairing the school governance and leadership committee. “I was blessed with serving under one of the finest administrators in the Middle TN area, and I try to implement a lot of her leadership style in the way that I do things.”
Logan received his Bachelor's Degree in History from Middle Tennessee State University and his Masters Degree in Education from Lipscomb University. He is currently taking classes to complete his licensure in School Management and Leadership through the Harvard School of Business. Logan is married to his college sweetheart, Caitlyn, and together they have two daughters, Mattie Adair and Millie, who are future Eagles themselves.
Logan’s friends and family know him as a lover of books, cooking, running, and an avid fan of Jimmy Buffett. Logan loves Macon because, “this town is growing - I love the incredible potential I see in this place.”
Logan’s philosophy about a strong independent school is that “every child should be known and every child should be loved.” Stratford Academy embodies that belief by personalizing every interaction and encounter with a child along the way, from their entrance in preschool to their graduation in senior year.
Of all the things Logan loves to do at this school, his favorite is working carline. “In the mornings and afternoons, I love getting to talk to parents, joke with kids, play music, and just the opportunity to have their day begin and end on a happy note. That’s what it’s all about. Being known and loved.”
