Born in Pittsburgh, PA, and raised in Bethlehem, PA, Mark Devey grew up attending Moravian Academy. At the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, he earned a BA in English and went on to earn a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Klingenstein Center Teachers College in educational leadership, with a concentration in private school leadership.
Devey began his teaching career at Fessenden School in Massachusetts, where he also served as coach, theater director, and dorm parent. Subsequently, he has worked as an Assistant Academic Dean of Students at Harvard-Westlake School in California, Middle School Head at The Kinkaid School in Texas, Head of Middle School at The Episcopal Academy in Pennsylvania, and Head of School at Indian Mountain School in Connecticut.
Devey has consistently worked to expand academic, arts, and athletics programs to ensure a diverse school experience. At Indian Mountain School he oversaw the planning and building of a new student center that became the hub of the campus and integrated art, music, and all academic disciplines with the cutting-edge Fabrication Laboratory as a focal point. Under his leadership, the school revamped its academic programs, expanding the STEAM program (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) to include robotics, rocketry, a SeaPerch underwater robotics program, and a variety of opportunities that resulted in multiple students earning top achievement awards at the Connecticut State Invention Convention.
