Meet Lise


Born and raised in Haiti, Head of School Lise Charlier was educated in the Haitian, French, and American educational systems. She comes to CSW with over 25 years of administrative and teaching experience in the U.S. and abroad. She formerly served as director of studies and strategic initiatives at Severn School in Severna Park, Maryland. Prior to her role at Severn, Charlier was upper school assistant principal at Friends School of Baltimore in Baltimore, Maryland. She has served on the board of trustees for Green Street Academy, the Association of Independent Maryland and DC Schools (AIMS), the Cowles Charitable Trust, and most recently the Center for Spiritual and Ethical Education (CSEE). She holds an MS in education from Johns Hopkins University and a BS from Georgetown University. 
"Together we will guarantee that CSW remains an extraordinary school — a place where young people have the time and space to grow into the people that they want to be, in an environment that allows them to know and appreciate themselves and others, where they can ask questions freely and fully, engage in intellectual pursuit, and be kind and contributing members of society who seek social justice locally and globally."
