About TLS


Una MacCarthy comes to The Lexington School from The Lexington School! A life-long educator, Una has been in independent school leadership for twenty-five years.

Since 1996, Una has been involved in all aspects of The Lexington School’s leadership. As Middle School Head and Assistant Head of School, she is an advisor to the Head of School and lead Division Head. As such, Una has been an integral part of all strategic planning initiatives, school task forces, and committees, and she is a strong implementer of resulting change. 

Una: "Twenty-two years of love for this school has allowed me the opportunity to build an incomparable portfolio of administrative experiences. Collaborating with an incredible team of professionals, I am proud to be a part of this nationally-ranked school. We have come a long way. I understand the significance of transition, the need for stability, and the boldness needed to continue moving forward." 

Originally from Glasgow, Kentucky, Una attended The Masters School in Dobbs Ferry, New York, completed her undergraduate degree at The University of Kentucky, and received her Masters in Educational Administration from The University of South Carolina. She is married to a Lexington School alum, three of her four children have attended TLS, and she has long-standing and deep relationships with generations of TLS alums and their parents. 

Una: "I love what I do because I believe in what I do.  I am passionate about TLS because year after year I have seen the power of its influence in the lives of the children who walk these halls. I am energized and enthusiastic to continue the good work that is part of the history of The Lexington School."
