Our Leadership & Founders

Bay Ridge Prep was established in 1998 by a team of educators and families led by Dr. Charles Fasano, the current Head of School. Dr. Fasano and his team, which included former Co-Head of School Dr. Michael Dealy, set out to create a school community that would put students first and prioritize the social-emotional well-being of each individual. Built upon the experience of its founders, the school continues to successfully carry out its mission by hiring, retaining and training faculty and staff who share in this educational vision.
