Interim Head of School, Dominique Velociter


It is a privilege to serve the French American School of Princeton’s (FASP) international community as the interim Head of School (HOS) until the end of June 2023. I am stepping into very big shoes taking over after Corinne Güngör, the school founder and longtime HOS. As a school founder and seasoned head of international schools myself, I am confident that the Board of Trustees and I will provide the groundwork for a smooth and safe transition to the next permanent headship.

The past months have dramatically affected the world’s communities. While moving on will prevail in the end, we expect to remain in recovery mode for several additional months. We hope nevertheless to be able to start the 2021-22 school year as close to normality as possible, yet will know more about this in the month of August.

It is with pride that I joined the FASP community. Every morning upon entering our stunning campus is an opportunity to feel grateful for the beauty of nature and to celebrate the uniqueness of a pastoral setting. At FASP our students feel safe to learn, express themselves and taste new experiences. We encourage them to seek their unique creativity, unleash their curiosity, reflect and share thoughts, and embrace challenges. Daily, our bilingual students seize the boundless shapes, tastes, melodies and colors of the world illustrating an array of people, customs and communities, while preparing for a rich journey of exchanges and discoveries.

We welcome your child and family in our bilingual school and multicultural international community. We look forward to seeing you on our campus.

A très bientôt,

Dominique Velociter
Interim Head of School
