  • Welcome to Our New Athletic Director

    We are delighted to announce the hiring of our new Athletic Director, Sarana Hyatt. Throughout every step of our process Sarana impressed members of our community with her commitment to sports and leadership, her focus on relationship building and supporting coaches, and her investment in developing students and building community. A Division I athlete herself, Sarana ran track at Sacred Heart University, and has coached at Columbia University, George Mason, La Salle, and then at Sidwell Friends where she was also a full-time staff member, managing their running programs and teaching PE. Sarana holds both a BS and an MS in Exercise Science and Nutrition from Sacred Heart University. Having recently completed a McLendon Fellowship within the University of Virginia athletic department, Sarana has developed relationships with communities in the Charlottesville area and has many ties here. We are so happy that she will soon join us!
  • Celebrating Fall Traditions

    Fall of 2021 found us thankful to be celebrating the many autumn traditions beloved by the Tandem community. Last year, COVID kept us from enjoying all of them. This year, we happily re-embraced the joys of Spirit Week, Halloween, Pumpkin Carving, a Blue Ridge Day hike followed by warm fires with s'mores and cider, an outdoor Open Mic that was full of surprises, an Upper School drama production, Middle School fine arts, and much more. Traditions are treasured at Tandem Friends!
